This illustration is one of the artworks for the playing cards of a board game which is being designed by a game designer I’m friends with.
The game takes place at the beginning of the 20th century and centers around the upper crust of that era. The players can place bets on the results of horse races and with a little luck, increase their wealth that way.
Despite the artwork depicting the horse races, it’s designed to show the action from the perspective of the gentleman in the foreground, since the players also take on the role of the audience as opposed to the jockeys.

This is a look behind the scenes for the creation of the wimmelpicture on my home page.
Visitors of my website should understand at first sight that I'm all about drawings and illustrations. I also want to convey what I am capable of achieving in that area. For these reasons one of the first elements that is visible on the home page is a picture with 92 distinct drawn characters. In the center of it is my logo, which I'm just finishing to draw.
