Jessie van Aelst
I’m an overly passionate artist with an addiction to polygons, brushstrokes and colors.
Ever since I was young I always loved to craft, draw pictures for my friends and family and most of all; play games. My childhood is filled with nostalgic memories of playing around with digital content. From creating tunes on my Nokia 3310 to playing Alex Kidd on the Sega for the millionth time.
I originally started out loving 2D art. My schoolbooks were filled more with sketches than with actual notes. I decided to learn 2D art programs on my computer to experiment with the possibilities. I begged my parents to send me to an art school. We settled halfway and I could attend an after-school art class for a year. I also got a junior degree from this experience.
After high school I set out to pursue this itch for creation and joined the Digital Arts & Entertainment bachelor program; a degree that combined my love for creativity and games.
3D quickly caught my eye. The extra dimension gave room for exploration and adventure. Those same things that captivated me when I was a kid.
Nowadays I enjoy making artwork that evokes a nostalgic feeling in the viewer.
