Yes...pinball machines are still being made! And who doesn't like to play a game of pinball?
'Ever since I was a young boy, I played the silver ball' and in 2011 I started creating animations for the first game by Jersey Jack Pinball, USA. In the years after, I got involved in many other pinball related projects. These are the games I've worked on.
CLIENT: JERSEY JACK PINBALL
YEAR: 2016 - 2017
MY ROLE: LCD-ARTIST
Custom themed games ask for a lot of custom created graphics. Dialed In! is equipped with 3 LCD-screens that needed to be filled. I created the entire 3D-city, designed the broadcast news channel 'UI-layer', animations for the holographic display and graphics interface for the 'phone-display'...Crazy!...
THE BIG LEBOWSKI

YEAR: 2014 - 2015
MY ROLE: ART-DIRECTION & DOT-MATRIX-ARTIST
I created the backglass and cabinet art for this cult classic themed pinball game. Also created many of the animations on the colored dot-matrix screen.
There's an actual bowling alley beneath the playfield and ofcourse it comes with a rug!
