About Eugene Arenhaus
Who I am
My name is Eugene Arenhaus.
I currently reside in Haifa, Israel.
I have worked as freelance illustrator since 1996, mainly with role-players and small role-playing game publishers, but I also did book illustrations and lots of private jobs. My pursuits include visual anatomy, character design, classic illustration. Lately I have begun work on several picture books. I suppose I lean toward expressionism — I care more about creating a correct mood with my pictures, than about strict adherence to reality. But I manipulate reality in my work, rather than reject it.
I am also a programmer, and work as such intermittently, usually doing interface design tasks. I have mostly switched to web programming for the past several years. My interests in that area are online community design, programming language design, games and interfaces, among other things.
I also have many other minor hobbies and interests, from comparative linguistics and psychology to biology and martial arts. (I practice the modern, developing Israeli martial system called Lamed Mem.)I do not drink Coke, do not read yellow press, and do not watch TV.
The easiest method of communication is electronic mail; please use this form to send me a message. (Sorry for providing no link, but spammers have become a major threat, and I am not willing to supply anything to their address harvesters.)
My ICQ number is 3 0 4 6 9 9 7 2.
My Skype ID is arenhaus.
I do not use AIM or other messenger services.
My Digimarc Creator ID used to be 802210, but I stopped using it after Digimarc changed their pricing policies unacceptably a few years ago.
