Nashville backdrop – update
Here’s an update on my previous post on the Nashville music-bar backdrop illustration, with a picture of the actual stage/band and backdrop in action. It’s always great to see your work in context!

I’ve had a few requests recently for links to tutorials I produced for various magazines in the past. The majority of them were created for 3D World, Imagine FX and 3D Artist magazines, and resided on their respective websites.

And another concept becomes real…
Seems a bit of a trend lately,  whilst browsing the web,  I keep seeing new tech product releases that mirror concept designs I’ve created previously! In all fairness,  this new Razer tri-screen laptop is significantly larger and aimed at the PC gaming market, but it appears to follow a very similar principal of our original Tri-Mac concept from 2008! 😉 Razer tri-screen laptop

I knew i’d seen that before! ;)
I was inspired to look back at one of the many Apple related product concepts I have designed and rendered over the years, after seeing the recently released MacBook Pro (2016). Seeing the ‘touch bar’, I couldn’t help but notice that we (MacLife magazine and myself) hinted at this possibility in our ‘Keyboard Touch’ design back in 2008.

Meeting Doug Chiang at SWCE 2016!
I’ve just returned from my first ever Star Wars convention – not sure why it’s taken me so long to attend one, given that I’ve been a fan since I was 7! I was thrilled to have attended a panel of one of my favourite concept artists; Doug Chiang, who took us through his working processes, and gave a lot of insight into his long running role as a major designer on the Star Wars films – I envy this man’s career history! 🙂 It was wonderful then, to find him near the exit of the convention centre talking to other fans. I couldn’t resist the photo op!

Here is a small shot from inside a martian fighting machine depicting a martian navigating, and planning his attack. Cinema 4D and After Effects. Commissioned by Aspect Ratio.
