Last year, I was contacted by a production company about my ‘New Eden’ image, which depicts my vision of one possible design of a cylindrical space colony. Gerald K. O’Neill described his ideas for such a colony in his book of 1977, The High Frontier: Human Colonies in Space. The production company were working on a documentary film of the same name, and wished to use my image, alongside some of the very same original concept artwork that helped inspire my own interpretation of the idea. I’m most proud of this, and honoured to be a contributor to a even a small part of this production! You can view the documentary on the Space Channel, TCM, Plex and Apple TV so far. Check it out!

Its not often that I have time for any personal work, or feel inclined to generate an image as social commentary…
It’s funny how as a working illustrator/animator, you can kinda forget some of the various jobs, or elements you create for any given project. That is,
Maxon UK updated their blog today, having uploaded the entire, 16 hour sci-fi space colony tutorial I created for them, using Cinema 4D. Check it out here

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!
Maxon UK recently asked me to create a video tutorial, based on a cover illustration I previously created for MacLife magazine (see below). I decided to give this new design a
I recently completed an illustration for ‘A Country Night in Nashville’, who are currently beginning their UK tour, recreating the music of many Country and Western legends. My brief was to
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.
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 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.
I created a number of renders for Dorling Kindersley’s Animals, which is now available on their store. Check it out at the link below. DK Animals
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!
