Art CreditsThe stories, and links, behind the art.
Kim Taylor (Puppydust, on Vimeo) is a motion graphics artist and director in London. During my search for images to inspire the committee, staff, and guests of DarkCon, this one struck a chord early on. You can tell the buildings look a bit warped, as if maybe they’re some of those rounded corners on a ‘circus’ in London, but, actually, it’s because this is a screen capture from a 360° VR experience created for a television production.
The motion clip, backing down the street and entering a time machine is here, and, as beautiful as it is, if you’re interested in modern immersive art, you’ll like the full CGI breakdown video even more.
Sure, this picture is a little early for Victorian Horror, but when I was looking for a first image for the membership area, it sang to me. I initially found it on one of those scrapey wallpaper sites, and after a little digging, found the original artist, his Deviant Art gallery, and his professional website.
Of course, there’s a lot more beautiful art to see in both places. Have a look. And if you need a cover for a book or some game art (and I’m unavailable! Ha! See what I did there?) No, really. He’s for hire, If you’ve got a project that needs guns that big. I mean… You don’t have to look at his impressive client list, just take a look at this work. You’re not going to see this guy on Fivver.
