Working with a content creator for Fellowship of Friends making JRR Tolkien content with an emphasis on the Rings of Power. We wanted to create mystery but keep it in the analysis/commentary format. Maping Rhun was my greatest challenge and another chance working with 3d spaces in After Effects.
I wanted to capture an introspective feeling and show the Detroit River’s expansiveness. I went with a late summer sunset vibe with lots of warm pinks and cool blues.
I spent a formative part of my life in and around Moffett Field in California. I remember P3s constantly practicing touch-and-goes and the ever-encroaching silicon valley on the other side of the freeway that separated the base from Mountain View, CA. I would come out of our base housing townhouse to see this giant airship hangar in front of me. The base housing I lived in is long gone, and the airship hangar sits as a shell of its former self. I painted it the way i remember it, full of activity, life, and awe.
This is the story of America right now. Themes of poverty, addiction, mental health, and racism all collide on Kensington Ave in Philadelphia. I wanted the composition to be realistic, showing paint strokes or a harsher blending. I kept the color theme modern and utilized a simple screened concrete overlay to add some texture.
