This month's transportation-themed issue of the excellent Surface magazine features 11 pages of illustration and fashion photography put together by art director Chris Mozsary, photographer Daniel Bernauer and myself.
I think the result strikes a pretty solid balance between our goals; my apparently insatiable thirst for disjointed urban landscapes was quenched, Bernauer's razor-sharp models took center stage, and Mozsary's story of dystopian-chic surface-dwellers was told.
Despite the crunched timeline (less than two weeks from start to finish if I recall), every detail seen in the final pieces is original. I did only minimal sketches for each environment before jumping directly into digital. To ensure a unique, finely-tailored result, I created all 3D models and textures specifically for the piece.
