FransMensinkArtist's Profile Picture

Frans Mensink
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Netherlands
I am a freelancer, self employed, self taught illustrator for 20-something years. Started in Heavy Metal Art (CD art, gag-comic in Aardschok magazine, posters and such) but leaned towards the erotic always. I have a trilogy published by NBMpublishing.com about Kristina, Queen of Vampires (hardcore stuff), had erotic and mainstream gag-comics published in magazines, newspapers and have illustrated websites, books and stories.
I do many storyboards and such (lay-outs, animatics) for ad agencies worldwide.

Personal Statements;

-Exploring the female form (which is what I do a lot) is like inventing the wheel over and over again, only about a million times more fun- (FM)

-Tattoos are like graffiti. They can be well done and awesome, when on your walls they never help to increase the value of your house- (FM)

-I don't fear Death. I aspire to be dead when I'm done living- (FM)

Favourite genre of music: metal
Favourite style of art: Erotic
Operating System: OSX

Some of the Art here is gathered in separate Portfolios (feature of DA).

Interests

Commissions

Yes, I do commissions, and I appreciate your interest. There are some things you might want to consider before contacting me though;
To be able to make a serious quote I will need a prettty detailed briefing by note or via email. I can't discuss commissions or reply to questions about prices in comment boxes.
A briefing consists of more information than; "I would like you to paint my character. What does that cost in general?"
I can't answer that. I don't have price-lists, I don't know your character, and I am not a fast food restaurant.

I do custom artwork and that means I have to know what I would have to do, how you would like it to look, how the character(s) should be and what the painting should depict. It's also important to know what will happen with my painting when it's done. Is it for publication or private use and what size and format would be preferred? Those are important details that influence the price.

I am pretty versatile and good at what I do. I'm fast, efficient, discrete and reliable, but I am never cheap.
Nothing worthwhile comes from a budget under 150 Euros, so I will usually have to pass on that. I could do things for less but not my way. That's why I'd rather leave that to others. Erotic art is frowned upon anyway and it won't get any better if I would do rushwork just because the budget is not adequate.

I'm not limited to erotic art. I'll be happy to make you something else. As I am in advertising I can make almost anything believable. As long as the main subject is people. I doze off when I only have to make machines of any kind, buildings or landscapes.

Most commissions do not make it into my galleries. That is because they're either too personal and sensitive for the client or because it is too different for my portfolio. I'd like that to reflect my personal interests.
I have to consider that whatever I post anywhere might generate more similar commissions and I am careful not to wind up in scenes or get stuck on subjects that are not mine. I don't mind to digress now and again thematically but all within limits as time is always of the essence.

I hope you understand.
Thanks

Dear Mr.Mensink,
i really love your work, especially the Kristina comics. you made Kristina a remarkable, well thought out character who really is an awesome superhero in disguise. In the upcoming future, will there be a chapter 4 and if not, how much is the comission price to create a chapter? Also, if you do, i would really love Kristina kicking Mike and Iris ass, turning them into vampires cause they are the real jerks. all they done is examine dead criminal bodies while Kristina actually help save helpless women from rapists

If it would make any difference or change anyone's mind I would try but as that is not going to happen I don't see the point. Me and most sensible people condemn that attack already and those that don't are either the shooters or their supporters. No artwork will change any of that. Sorry.

Been a long time since I visited here…entirely my fault. I'm glad I got back, though, because catching up with your posts has been completely enjoyable. Loved so much of what you've been up to, especially the trompe l'oeil drawings. I look forward to getting back here again soon.

I came across you by chance a couple of days ago and have become a huge fan already. You have a great feeling for the erotic and appreciation of a truly beautiful woman. I find the combination of the innocent and erotic a huge turn on, the kind of nice, respectable girl who would probably work in a bank by day, but is into the erotic by night!
