Once again vimeo serves up another tasty morsel. ‘Everything I Can See From Here’ delivers one of the funkiest and scariest aliens I’ve ever seen: day-glo dreads, cowboy boots and one mean bitch of a ray gun – what more could you ask for? A toasted whippet perhaps. Thank you Sam and Bjorn for spawning this little beauty!
Over recent months I’ve been focusing a lot of energy on my YA sci-fi adventure, Etherwheel. As always inspiration comes from all angles and I’ve been drawing huge amounts of it from the twisted, dribbling, tentacled brilliance that spews from the nibs and brushes of CreatureBox.
The inkspawn of Dave Guertin and Greg Baldwin (both Lead Artists at the awesome Insomniac Games), CreatureBox specialize in character and creature design, comics and concept work. Their illustration has a sense of humor and tone of voice that really hits the spot for me and I can’t help but visualize my own characters in their distinct style – if only I had the readies to hire these doodling maniacs to give life to the creatures in my head!
Their website and blog are definitely worth a regular visit and you can easily kill a lunch break sifting through their comics, sketchbooks and galleries. Vast amounts of talent and boundless imagination… CreatureBox, I salute you!
Loving this animation, a great idea beautifully executed. Enjoy:
An artist who totally melts my brain every time I look at his work, Adam Spizak. Hyperreal, twisted beauty…and just check out the detail, it goes so deep. If I was making a movie of Neuromancer I’d want this guy heading up the concept design.
Kill an hour or two gawking at his digital wizardry:
Man I love Josh Keyes’s work! His surreal images of a world reclaimed by nature just tickle my post-apocalyptic pips. JG Ballard meets Salvador Dali, feast your eyes on a painter with veins full of imagination and skill.
