I love your works, I am especially fond of Flink and Lionheart, the second one was one of my favourite Amiga games. Your works are worshipped in Italy, see www.retrogaming.it (http://www.retrogaming.it/amiga/lionheart.htm)

Dear Henk, a few years before, i told you, that your pixelwork is very great and showed you my own try's in drawing. Now i want to thank you for your great work in pixeling again, Thank You, Henk! :) btw. the gallery's don't work correctly in the Firefox2.0-Webbrowser :( (if i click on a picture[Thumbnail], it's not updating in the main-pic-window). oh, and i'm learning to draw and push pixels again, cos it's to pity if i give up. if there is another pixeln00b out there, that want's to share pixelwork and drawings, plz visit my homepage and drop me a line (email) , thank you :)

dag henk, je kent me niet en ik jou ook niet voordat ik je lieve zus (collega Arduin) zichvol lof aanhoorde over jou en je talenten. wat is ze trots op je. en ik kan me er nu duidelijk iets bij voorstellen. echt bijzonder, ik wist niet dat nederland zoveel talent heeft op dit gebied. ik ben onder de indruk.

Wow man. All i can say is that youre work is near perfection. Im interested in knowing why most of the tiles in harry potter only use 3-5 pallette entries when there is an allowed 16? Is it just habbit from youre work on more restricting platforms? either way they look fabulous and youre work is insanely inspiring to me.

Hi. I'm not sure what to say about one of the finest pixel-pusher's I've run into, but... nearly perfect play, and I don't just mean "complete" either. It's all very nicely done. It makes me want to jump up and down and hollar "I ran across a professional pixel-pusher, and he realized this is where he belongs". I ammend you, you know what you like, and you love what you do! Cheers my friend.

Hello everybody. This webside look great. Henk, You are doing good job, your graphic look very nice sometime dark (Lionhear,Flink) sometime like fairtale(Flink,Lomax). I'm amiga user and I was playing in Lionhear (very good game) and Flink on my amiga, I didn't finished Flink, I only saw 4-5 first levels. If I have more time I will back to this game. Last time I found Lomax on some abbandonwere webside with old games for pc. Anybody know what is Lomax status? Will I be against the law if I download it. I know that Psygnosis don't exist now, but many people still work in many difrent commanies, Tim Wright done great soundtrack for Wipeout Pure for PSP, Roger Dean is still painting : ). When I look at Flink screenshots I see something from Shadow Of The Best graphic style, dark fantasy and 2d perfection. Nowdays it's hard to find good 2d game. Cheers.

Hi Henk! Your pixel art rules so much, it's depressing! While for me it is a great source of inspiration, it is also a source of envy and dismay, as I fear I will never be as good: ) Your work on Lomax, Flink and Harry Potter is out of this world. Don't EVER give up pixeling! : )

hey there henk, you remember me from pixelation? I'm the guy who bitched about the lack of colors in harry potter when you went to pxation. I just learnt that your bday was a few days ago, so I thought I'd post here, happy bday! good luck! btw, I also wanted to say, it would be infinitely cool if you added some sprites an anims to your page.

Im a big fan of your work, your pixel art is so warm and fun to view.. it really pulls you in. Q: Did you work on other Psygnosis titles for Sega genesis i.e. Wiz 7 Liz? What about other Amiga titles like Gobliins? Do you do the title art to the games too? it has a slightly psychedlic Roger Dean feel to it. You bring an organic feel to a digital realm.

I just checked out your site after recommendation from Stefan Scheffers (he sits next to me since he escaped eurocom!). Your work is really fantastic - I actually remember playing Flink on CD32 lots and really loving it. I'm glad to see you're still creating great work, and it's always nice to see a fellow Metal Slug fan! :)

Wow. I've gotta admit -- Your work is really amazing. I wish that I could sprite (pixel art) as good as you. I've been spriting for 6 years, and there's a lot of good material out there... But this is by far some of the best I've seen. Very, very impressive.

Hello, Henk! I was a pixel artist for three years when I was developing games for the PC and GBA (programming, music, story and all!), but I've since gone into film. It's been nearly 2 years since I've pixeled! Anyway, I've been a fan of your work for a while now and I just had a question: A long time ago in an interview you mentioned a project that was slated to come out mid-2004. Well, it's an inside joke in this business that you can never, ever, ever count on release dates (heh, so true), but I was wondering if you were still working on it, and if you possibly had a rough estimate of when we'd be able to see your work for this project. Drop me an e-mail when you have the time. Take care. :)

Hey Henk you truely are one of the best pixel artists around on this part of the globe, not to mention that you're from the netherlands aswell. I'm into pixeling aswell however my biggest problem is finding the right colors and shades etcetera; would you mind mailing me a good tip on getting the right shades and hues to give the sweet affect many of your works have? I'd realy appreciate it. And good days for the rest lad.

I was glad that you stopped by Pixelation, it was nice to have a celebrity amongst the amateurs of pixel-pushing.

I haven't actually played many of these games, but I am a HUUGE fan of 2D versus 3D. Adventures of Lomax is my absolute most favorite game of all time, narr! Everything has one insane fan, and Adventures of Lomax has me now that it didn't get the fanpopularity that it deserved. Great work! :D
