Sebastiaan Van Doninck
Sebastiaan Van Doninck (b. 1979) is a master at drawing animals with human characteristics, capturing them on paper with humour and graceful elegance. He works both digitally and traditionally, tailoring his colours to the atmosphere of the story. Van Doninck aims for a personal, honest style: content and emotion come first. His pictures look fresh and have a cheerful, rather nostalgic atmosphere. But there’s always something lurking in the shadows; his cheerfulness has a dark edge. He knows exactly how to create a dazzling universe and has been winning plaudits for it all over the world.
