About

Hi, I'm Michiel van Ommen. I'm a visual artist at the game academy IGAD in the Netherlands. My interests are in art, story telling, technical design, and history.

I started off my carrier as a draftsman due to the lack of any digital art academies in Switzerland.
After having received a certificate in engineering, I strove to join a game academy in a different country.

Now I am eagerly looking for an internship course for my final year before joining a company to take part of this wonderful industry that is game development.
