About

About me

Hi, my name is Patrick Cornelis.

With  ‘Virus: Primary Infection’ I finally found a project I was ready to go for. A man possessed, I began developing the story and organized a  kickstarter.  My story and foremost my realistic style of drawing got  picked up by the investor community and half a year later my first  graphic novel was available in the shops !!!
The second episode 'Virus: Highborn' was released on October 13th 2017.
In  2018, several publications followed such as 'Virus 3: Absolute Power', 'De  Huivering', 'Verbonden Zielen' and the art book 'Mortinfernum'.
It  didn’t stop there… in 2019 'De Huivering 2' was released and I was commissioned to do a remake of a Rode Ridder (Red Knight) album by de Standaard  Uitgeverij.

I also illustrated for the Tomorrowlandboek Book of Wisdom.
Furthermore I worked on several movie projects and concept studies.

Good news for international comic stores and retailers!!!!

Virus anthology available in DUTCH - ENGLISH - FRENCH

Because the series will conclude with this fourth chapter, I thought it might be interesting to insert some rewards for retailers to be able to purchase the books for sale at their stores.

About the story

At last the saga comes to an end with an epic final confrontation between the magical celestial beings, the hordes of zombies and Warlock, his team and a rogue military organization.

  Is there still hope for victory or is all hope lost against the seemingly invincible celestial Saren, who has now merged with the essence of her sister Birr’chonna, commanding billions of zombies all over the world, along with her three minions.

  Oceania, the only untouched continent is doing everything it can to stave of infection and to give support to the rest of the world. But will they succeed in their efforts? They will need to find a solution to the rapidly approaching swarm of spores Saren released earlier (see Virus 3) that will ensure complete domination over Earth and will bring humanity to the brink of extinction.

  Choices will have to be made, sacrifices demanded, who will be the last one standing at the end? Read it in this final chapter.

 About the budget

This is by far my most prestigious Kickstarter. The climb is steep (25.000 euros) yet necessary to reach the end of the saga.

  The book will be translated in 3 languages (Dutch-French-English) and will be around 120 pages + plus bonus galleries and a full separate encyclopedia with descriptions and visuals of all of the characters. The start of Virus 4 will take place in the town where I live, Riemst. That means some of you will recognize a street or a nearby landmark. I am  hoping that the viral community will be strong enough to shoulder the burden of this massive project.

  So me and Warlock are counting on you to have our backs!!

About the venue

I live in Limburg, a province in Flanders, Belgium and I decided to make it the venue for some af the battles in Virus 4.

  The opening scene (the first five pages you can view here) for example.

  But also 'De Waterburcht' and 'The Mergel Caves' (a touristic attraction for the region), the municipal building, etc... will come into play.

About the benefits 

As always, I have done my best to provide/include the most enticing stuff in the different tiers to get you all on board. I also visualized the most important tiers so it’s easy to choose from. Tiers are cumulative. It means that if you choose to upgrade your donation, benefits will increase while keeping the ones you already have.

MAGICAL PLAYING CARDS

One of the benefits I hope you guys will really enjoy is the Magical playing card set 'Virus' (backers get 2 sets of playing cards in a tin box) comprised of 55 magic cards of the 'Virus'-universe. These sets will give you the opportunity to relive, reenact and even rewrite the outcome of 'Virus'.

ORIGINAL ART

Of course there will be original art too. From penciled drawings to colored drawings in the books, A4 and A3 original art and even a tier with a customized mural painting in your house or porch or mancave.

CAMEOS

Like always there will also be the opportunity to participate in this last chapter via a small role.

BEHEADED GALLERY

Enter the zombie hall of fame where you will be portrayed as a decapitated zombie head on a spike. Your name will be displayed under the head in a gruesome gallery of victims. You will also get a customized t-shirt with your zombified head on it (all sizes).

Visualisation of some of the benefits

Risks and challenges

Because of the high goal I set it is highly possible that my ultimate dream of completing this series might not happen. But the cost and time it will take me do complete this feat gives me no other choice. I sincerely hope that the goal will be reached. And I need every single one of you to get there :-)
