Visual Communication

My work revolves around the concept of space, the nigh-infinite landscape beyond our atmosphere. I wanted to use space as my primary stimulus when creating conceptual work for a videogame, as it is something of great interest to me and filled with inspirational objects and ideas. I didn’t want to just directly make concept-art about space in particular however, but instead find ways I could take a theme/object from space itself and integrate its features/characteristics into a piece, how I could personify or visualise specific attributes of a celestial body. The visuals shown have been created using a variety of mediums from hand rendered mark-making to digital rendering in an attempt to create an energy and interesting narrative for the viewer to connect with.
