What’s this?

I’m Lúthien (Maike) Dulk: visual artist, graduate of the Artez academy. I also studied physics: an unusual (though at times very useful) combination. 

I create animations (and illustrations) in a variety of techniques, from 3D via 2D cartoon-style to frame-by-frame.

Have a look around, and don’t hesitate to contact me for further questions.

I make animations and illustrations

Animation is not the art of drawings that move but the art of movements that are drawn.

Norman McLaren

I feel little affinity with the postmodern conceptualism in art with its ironic cultural avant-gardist presumption. 

I rather look at the older interpretation of art as creating things that communicate something meaningful – which could be understanding, satire of enchantment. I found that this is yet another way in which I have come to appreciate Norman McLaren, the great Scottish-Canadian animation pioneer. His work can be funny, magical, touching, cerebral  and even moralistic; but it is never pretentious.
