Who is behind?
Hi there, I´m Sebastian, founder and lead designer of Awake Arts. Most of the work over here is done by me, but from time to time I connect and work together with other artists and freelancers for special projects. So I always like to describe this studio as a very small collective of creative rpg-loving story-, painting-, crafting- and gaming nerds which serves the huge community of exactly those people out there.
I´m in touch with RPG-, board- and computer games since early childhood and always loved to create new worlds, characters and stories. After a longer gaming break during adolescence, I visited a small tabletop fair closeby and was amazed, being confronted again with all the old feelings about world creation. I immediately revert to tabletop board gaming and after a few years I switched to complex tabletop role playing and dungeon crawling games like Hero Quest and Dungeons & Dragons. Also I started to get deeply into the acts of drawing, painting and digital modeling, to be able to express my gaming visions. During that period I collected and painted a lot of miniatures and tried out several new RPG-systems, but the market did not always provide the stuff I really wanted to have on my table.
During some backpacking trips I had what I call my personal mental awakening. I quit my former quite boring job as a university lecturer and enthusiastically began to do professionally what I love by connecting with some creatives around and finally founding Awake Arts. Being a culture and landscape, as well as history and story lover, my original ideas, final pieces and my direction throughout the studio are highly influenced by my frequently made travel experiences and of course other authors and artists - Hironobu Sakaguchi (Japan), J.R.R. Tolkien (* South Africa), George R.R. Martin (USA) Rola Chang (Taiwan), Yoshitaka Amano (Japan), Bruce Hirst (USA), H.R. Giger (Switzerland), Ridley Scott (UK), Peter Jackson (New Zealand), James Gurney (USA), William Gibson (USA) and Masamune Shirow (Japan) just to name a few.
And now I do not want to bore you and prevent you from being creative! I wish you a great time with our designs!
