Story

I make things up and imitate art.
Introduction

My name is Oliver Wetter, head of Ars Fantasio.
I am a visual artist from Germany. I love to make up things and imitate art. 

My profession involves doing book cover art, poster designs and advertising illustration. Besides this duty I´m a lecturer at the IBKK art institute in Bochum/Germany, where I teach digital painting.

In my spare time I write about art, marketing and technology on Ars Fantasio and for Altpick Connects

In times between commissions I regularly create exclusive and personal works for early adopters on my venture Patreon.com/fantasio

Contact me for a noncommittal quote on your project.

Another Light and color study, this time with Yui Takamura. Reference was an action figurine. 
Another Light and color study, this time with Yui Takamura. Reference was an action figurine. Not perfectly happy with it, but for a study it is OK I guess. This one will be available as step process piece and hi-res version for my patrons exclusively. have a nice day! Cheers

The Art Of Security: Sirens, Box of Pandora and Trojan Horse
This was an interesting assignment. The company I did these illustrations for, Risk Analytics has the slogan:" The Art Of Security ". Personally I find this a very great take for a data-security venture to use art to illustrate what their business is about....
Fantastic illustrations done for Risk Analytics to showcase the Art Of Security aspect of their business.

Facebook implemented working animated Gifs by the end of May 2015. Nearly 2 years after G+ and at least 7 years after tumblr. And it is not important. Apple has introduced its own maps and direction service 7 years after google. Tethering was also implement...
