We just launched a new experience for A Company of Wolves — WeCreateWolves.com
A Co. of WLVS, is an ideal experience of art & design. The artists involved act as a symbol to represent the canis lupus migrations & travels throughout each territory across the globe. A visual field of tracks / wolf-line collectively & individually. We’ve created a dialogue with the historical + mythical battle of the wolf. The fear & pride; the monster in your view-finder, did our imagination create it, questions of if it was/is/continues an illusory matrix & the epic odyssey of our dear protagonist-villain polarity.
This new site was launched to share more of what we have to offer. You should continue to view ofWLVS.co for news updates & corporate/commercial information. Pulling energy with each phase of the moon, a record of pack activities are on the following social sites — ofWLVS.tumblr.com, @ofWLVS, facebook.com/ACompanyOfWolves, be.net/ACompanyOfWolves & pinterest.com/ofWLVS

Text over image // Multi-layered // Mask
Another recent addition whilst working on a couple of mask related images. Was looking at ways to produce a chrome effect to sharpen the surface and give it some depth/dimension. Using a variety of mediums, this exploration is what I would see as part of a sticker set or a board graphic.
Inspired by Ukiyo-e & the transmission of tales.

I recently launched a new site along with a bunch of new work, take a look!
Everybody needs a Time Off! And one of Indonesia’s raddest bands called time off knows how to deliver this message through their latest single! To support the band I designed a custom script to add to their fresh new video, directed by Mohamad Irsan from Gravitasi Video. So take a Time off and enjoy this awesome video clip!
Hello KDU staff and members,
So this is my very first post.
First i would like to thank the KDU Team and David Gensler and David Son for gaving me the opportunity to join this great and creative family.
My name is Daniël Matakupan. I’m a freelance illustrator residing in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands. In the past few years I’ve worked for clients such as TEDx Amsterdam, Sanoma Media, Publish Magazine, Funkrush Clothing and more. And now is a proud member of the KDU.
Hope you like my work!
Rage . Fury . Intense / Mixed Media
Recent new piece that looks great on print, it is has a neat aesthetic to it from every angle.
I started using hand written words at the beginning of the year, so, this is a strong visual reference to most of my work now.
There is a simple system of arrangement and process to get the effect used here, which in terms of an identity development, is a good look.
Whilst colour is always a good challenge, and of course there is a need for it, some newer pieces are simple black & white.
My view is that there is still so much depth to discover between these two tones, yet colour is just as pleasing for colour specific visuals that warrant.
This works well. Oh, colour items on the way too.
‘Crack Whips Ride Hard’ / Mixed Media
This is an old type piece, rather than scrap it, I thought the you may like it.
Completed in three colours, black on white has more impact. Reviewing various + & – of using mixed media.
This is only a reference piece that has been printed, although it looks pretty good on screen.

InkFace / New Development / Mixed Media :
Here is the latest edition of artwork.
In a nutshell my own development using an array of mixed media, every tool I have is being used fully and cranked hard!
This has been a long time coming, so for me, it is a milestone reached. After a few discussions around the table, plenty of caffeine, days melding into nights and nose to grind. I have been looking through a vast selection of old work that to me, is just that, old. The only way to push past this kind of ‘block’ was to scrap some, keep some, build anew. Still the same one man show, but this time, more determined with a whole trunk of focus.
I am very aware that this point was reached well over a year ago, during this swift development, one of the main factors was by reading my personal journal posts and how slow and frustrating the process has been.
To quote the previous post, production time is now much swifter, paying much close attention to mediums used + file types to ensure size aspect & resolution stays exact.
Fully confident that this will develop much further as my own language as an Artist and Designer.
