Environmental Concept Art

For a while, I was interested in making a concept art section of my website, but I was really just making concept art to help envision my own world and artwork. This concept art section of my website didn’t seem quite right for some reason, so I thought a blog about my ideation process might be a better method of displaying everything from sketches to more finalized concept art. I hope someone out there finds this interesting. But if no one else cares, I hope that this will be a good method to record my own ideation process for myself.

In general, I expect this blog to be focused on the artistic voice I’m constantly chasing/forming/willing into existence. So far, my artistic voice has evolved into this idea of developing a fantasy/mythological/alternate world based on the culture I come from, a fantasy americana. That ranges from southern bayous, Appalachian backwoods, to the white picket fences of suburbia. I just want to depict these things with a bit more epicness. Below, you’ll see a foggy swamp village built on a giant tree like I used to see in Savannah, GA and a monumental statue of a woman on a giant white picket fence. For some reason, I like to think of this statue as both a protector and a gate keeper.
