I've not updated for a while and probably won't be able to in the near future due to the nature of the work I'm currently on.
Here are just a couple of pieces from Ultron, Uncle and a few others. As an Art Director its my responsibility to make sure the artists that work for me deliver both the right vision for the piece as well the quality. That can mean collaborating on Art. The Uncle 'Checkpoint Charlie' piece was started by Joe Mclamb and I jumped in later.
As I look around the web at the explosion of concept art, I see how most up and coming artists concern themselves only with technique. The ideas are usually more important and harder to define as a process.
painting a picture is relatively easy, coming up with a good idea is not. It is very collaborative and usually not one person can claim an idea or that painting was solely theirs.
I recently finished a lecture at the Industry Workshops in London. It was great to see so many people and I had some great thoughtful questions at the end. I wonder if anyone understood what I was really on about.......
