My name is Christian Schwager...

... I'm a freelance illustrator, concept artist and graphic designer.
Hailing from a small town in Bavaria called Landshut, I moved to New Zealand in 1999 and currently work out of my home-based studio in Auckland.

I've been drawing and painting ever since I could hold a pen in my little hands. Over the years I have worked in a wide variety of jobs, while also working as a freelance illustrator and cartoonist on the side. In 2002 I finally went freelance full-time as an illustrator, concept artist and graphic designer. Since then I have been working on many varied projects, including games (RPGs, CCGs/TCGs, board, tabletop, and video games), film & TV, comics, advertising, educational books, and private commissions. See further below for a list of some of my clients.

My artwork is usually a mix of traditional sketching and digital painting, and I greatly enjoy exploring the darker and weirder aspects of science-fiction and fantasy. That being said, I think of myself as highly adaptable and can employ a variety of styles to suit the project at hand.

I am always open to new commissions and have original artworks, as well as prints of my work for sale.
