Game Artist and Illustrator

My name is Remco Bakker and I'm from the Netherlands. I'm currently working as a game artist at a company in central Amsterdam. During the train ride between home and work I also like to work on my personal projects. I find such joy in creating art, and I hope that joy is visible to you in my artwork.
