Yo! It's been a while since I've posted on the blog. I've been busy with a few projects. After Art Directing on the latest Star Trek: Into Darkness and Percy Jackson films, I went over to EA / Visceral Games. I now work there as Lead Concept Artist on a top secret project - it's gonna be cool!

Police Cruiser Concept Vehicle


I've been working on this Police Cruiser concept design for a while. It's gone through a few iterations. They naturally formed 3 stages of design in the model and paint. The N3 Scorpion is in black above.


The N1 and N2 are below with a more traditional black and white police car paint.

Concept Art for "Looper"


Last year I had the pleasure of working as a Concept Artist designing a whole bunch of shots at Atomic Fiction for "Looper". I did a great deal of Concept Design for the futuristic cities seen in the film. I then took several of my concepts to final by completing the matte paintings for the big screen.


 Here's a design sheet to get the futuristic vocabulary started on the project.


 A quick concept for future Shanghai and the final matte painting (above). Both painted over a plate of modern San Francisco.


Here's the tech assembly (above) for a futuristic holographic-billboard. Since the hologram in the film was going to be somewhat transparent, I had to design the structure and projection blades for it.

Below is a bunch of nighttime concepts I designed with Looper's telltale "abandoned" buildings invaded by squatters and the poor. In some buildings you can see campfires lit.

Flyer Bike Helmet


I'm still working on this futuristic helmet design. It goes with the Ducati flyer-bike I designed a while back. The idea is to create an open top helmet for guys or gals that allows the head to breathe. In a collision, motion sensors deploy airbags that protect the open sections of skull.

N7 SNIPER ROBOT




Here's one of the Police / Military units I've been working on lately. I kinda thru this one together as a study in unique forms. I wanted it to be believable, not too far out there, but something sizable and stable for sniper accuracy.

The idea of laser guided bullets is not sci-fi, prototypes have been made and they're near market ready. Makers say bullet twists and turns in flight, making up to 30 corrections per second, as it guides itself towards target. My version is just slightly futuristic in it's accuracy range and the fact that it's an unmanned multi-use unit.

Rescue Bot Design Sheet


Design Sheet for the Coast Guard Rescue Bot.

Colossus Design Sheet


I thought it would be fun to call this little guy "Colossus". He's 60 cm (approx 2 feet).

Personal Servant Bot "Colossus"


Another robot design I've been working on. A second in a line of PSB's (Personal Servant Bot). Colossus is 2 feet tall.

U.S. Robotics Personal Servants


Personal Servant Robots... who wants one? Here's my concept design sheet for a servant robot I've been working on.

Personal Servant Robot


One of my PSR (Personal Servant Robot) designs. More to come soon. 

Indian Motor Bike Flyer


Here's a concept for a flyer-bike I designed a little while ago. A bit of the Old-School n' the New-School combo.

Coast Guard Rescue Vehicles


I've been working on this Coast Guard Rescue painting and vehicle design. Inspired by David Hobbins and his many amazing designs!


The sheet shows a bit of the profile shape-exploration I did for the vehicle. I tried to always keep the cockpit down low for better viewing of the water surface below. Also, I wanted to keep the engines high away from the water surface for less disturbance and a safe clearance for rear egress from the cabin. 

Coast Guard Diver-Bot


Here's my Coast Guard Diver-bot design that goes with the Rescue Ships painting.

Ducati Flyer


Here's a flying vehicle I've been designing lately. Ducati 2042. Oh and another thing... me likes flying bikes.

2042 AUDI POD WHEEL RACER


I've been working on the new 2042 Fission-Powered racing machine for Audi. It's not a Porsche, because by then they're only doing 4 door sports cars and SUV's... sigh.

Big-Bot

Big-Bot is yet another hero in the eclectic group called "The Fab Five".




Mega-Monster

This is a rough sketch / paint of Mega-Monster. He is part of a group of cartoon characters I'm exploring that will collectively form "The Fab Five".


Monster Walk

Yikes! Just like when I was a little boy.
