Pascal Verstegen
Artist | Professional | Design & Interfaces
New Zealand
I've been fiddling with computer interfaces since 2000. Graduated college as a Multimedia Designer and illustrated, designed and gradually developed stuff for the web and apps. Love playing indie games and I'm famous for grilling a mean burger. I like to travel and settle into 'normal' life, which I've done in Amsterdam, London, New York, San Francisco, Athens, Bangkok, Moscow, Brisbane and Wellington.

Currently living in Wellington, New Zealand and working Remotely for Fishisfast in Texas
Interests
Last July marked a decade ago that I joined deviantART, and I'd like to take a moment and thank this insane community for everything that this pushed me to doing.

I always had a love for interfaces and design, in 2000 when I was 10 years old I popped a CD-ROM (they look like what you put in your PS4) into my IBM Aptiva and it booted up a fullscreen highly illustrated menu for kids that allowed to install programs (now called 'Apps'.)

I started tweaking my computer for years, my username is even a rip-off of a Winamp skin I was using at the time by 883Design and when I got to deviantART I was required to sign up to download one of celsojunior and javierocasio beautiful wallpapers, and mattahan's icons.

I ended up trying to make my own wallpapers, then my own designs, and eventually my own Windows msstyle files (themes) with the entire community at my back to make what eventually became WRMZ and Peppered3 (Kjherstin, eggy, snowmask, frozenpandaman, CrisVector duhcoolies, eldarwen, twiggette - my how many senior badges.)
These got featured in magazines all over the world, got me into the spotlight, pushed me to major in art and design in college.

I did my internships in the US, worked all over Europe, travelled the world, and am still travelling, working remotely. I ended up being a freelance Front-end developer and UX designer and have been successfully independent for 4 years now, accomplishing more then I ever dared dream of I could do, and while these things make me intensely happy, I miss the sense of community from the days where I feuded with NKYC for who could apply the best Outer Glow to their Photoshop Illustrations, and laughed with archanN about the insanity of the stuff we pulled.

I mean to get back to making some illustrations, or at least publishing some of my work. And I'd love your thoughts and ideas on what to get started on, challenge me to make something! (especially you mauricioestrella)

Currently I live in Wellington, New Zealand with my girlfriend Azusa Makita, we're set to continue our travels next year and stay in her native 日本
For now find me on my personal site Superpencil.com, or on Twitter
