Moonchild Productions is the collective name under which Moonchild (M.C. Straver) releases his works in different disciplines. This name has been used since the mid-1990s for what was initially a self-employed web design company in the Netherlands, but has since then become a more encompassing name for all of the published (and some unpublished) works by Moonchild.

Who is Moonchild?

The driving force behind Moonchild Productions is a single person, Mr. M.C. Straver, also going by the artist name Moonchild. He was born in Roosendaal, the Netherlands, in 1971, and has lived in a good number of different locations in the world, ranging from the USA and different places in Europe to Australia. He currently resides in Sweden.
Having followed a professional education in Laboratory Informatics and Automation, it may come as no surprise that he has in-depth knowledge of computers, computer systems, networks and programming. The other side of him is a very creative one; drawing, sketching, colouring, shading - in traditional media as well as digital - makes up a good part of his legacy. In this same creative field is his past occupation as professional translator, it being mostly creative work (writing) - although of course the technical background of his education helped tremendously for technical manuals and similar texts.


The vision of Moonchild Productions is as multi-faceted as the individual behind it. One main driving force will always be quality of work - born from the principle that it is better to create something good and lasting than something that can be thrown away without a second thought. A second driving force is the release of works that are meant to improve quality of life, be it pleasing, providing efficiency, or promoting open communication.

Creatively speaking, the main goals are freedom of expression, openness, inventiveness. In the graphic arts, this is strongly influenced by the fascination with anthropomorphic animals and human-animal hybrids, although fantasy and myth are not shied away from either.

Professionally speaking, the main goals are fairness, honesty, best quality of work, and open communication. These unfortunately regularly clash with modern businesses - the holy grail of optimizations of processes often being only viable on paper and in practice requiring underhanded methods to achieve them - and as such, not all clients will be pleased with the principles upheld by Moonchild Productions. Fairness also means fairness of rewards, for both parties involved. The client gets fair rewards in quality of work and willingness to go the extra mile, if the reward for the provider is equally fair.
