Landscape cowboy

I don't get to paint literal things very often at my job, so here's something I spent a day or two on.  Will probably keep working on it.

I always get cowboy fever when it's close to February. Time to break out the Clint Eastwood collection.

Limited Edition: Ancillary Justice

I was recently commissioned to do a limited edition cover for Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice, which apparently has already sold out- Go Ann Leckie!
It was a great read and I was more than happy to see how much the book supported androgyny. It was a huge honor to work on this title.

I thought I would show some of the initial sketches and final.

A City Sleeps- Background Art



 Here are some of the new backgrounds I painted for A City Sleeps.  It was a nice change from helping with concept art to making in game, parallaxing backgrounds. It was definitely a first experience and an enjoyable one.  Taught me a great deal about silhouettes and absurdly long compositions.

Chroma Concepts

Just got permission to release some old Chroma concepts.
This was a fun project that had incredible depth and a lot of creative energy behind what we developed.

A City Sleeps- Art & Release



A new game from a very small group of Harmonix game developers was just announced. I've been fortunate enough to be tasked with making the backgrounds and Idols for the project. It's considered a shmup, but the audio is really what makes it a Harmonix game at heart. 

Here's some of the art released for the game so far:




I've never worked with parallaxing backgrounds before, nor a side scrolling game. It was a ball gathering the right references we needed for the right aesthetic. Hopefully you guys like what we've put a lot of heart and effort into.
More soon!

There be Dragons






Recently found out that I was fortunate enough to be included into this year's Society of Illustrator's Spectrum Exhibition in New York City, this coming September.

The same piece that was elected, has also been included on Tor.com, in what I consider to be one of the largest visual collections of dragons, from past to present illustrators.
Check it out when you can. For a concept of a creature that has been around for thousands of years, the amount of diversity is amazing.

UK PlayStation Magazine- Amplitude


UK Playstation Magazine published a recent article from the 4th of July, on Amplitude. they were kind enough to lend a double page spread to the concept art I made.
