About me


My name is Bo Thomas Michelsen, and I’m a graphic designer, game artist 2D/3D, illustrator, and I even do some animation from time to time.

I’m also a formerly trained biologist and high school teacher even though I’m too busy doing artist and game-related stuff these days.

I’m based in Aarhus, Denmark.

I draw and animate on demand with experience in 2D and 3D freelance work. I mainly focus on comics and computer/ board game graphics, but I also do a lot of quirky commissions and assignments. Whether you have fantasy paintings, children’s books, labels or logos – I would love to hear about your ideas!

My background story is that I was bitten by a radioactive comic book nerd, and after that I have loved doing comics and cartoony art. Since then I have lately moved into fantasy and sci-fi illustration and digital painting.
My every day job is making graphics and animations for indie game titles and apps. I usually juggle all the tasks and assignments., ranging from UI design to painting textures, ¬†story-boarding, animating, 3D modeling and doing concept art. I can’t help it.. I’m a workaholic.

My greatest strength is most likely that I am an imaginative hard-worker. If I can imagine something, odds are that I find a way to make it happen.
