Since I’ve been playing Wildstar so much here lately, I thought I’d celebrate with a little concept art dump!!  Some of the many random things I drew during my time at Carbine.  Also I’m sure Andy Cotnam, Mindy Lee, or Johnson Truong probably had a hand in the concepting of more than a few of these.  What a super talented team I had!

A rising star of the Asian art world Gwon Osang born 1974, obtained his M.F.A. in sculpture at HongIk University, Seoul, Korea in 2004. He has shown his work around the globe, done projects for Fendi and Nike, and collaborated on a record cover for the band Keane. Osang Gwon creates life-size figures of people through a combined use of sculpture and photography.

I started in 1998, in my third year of college. I debuted my first photo-sculpture in 1999. I majored in sculpture, which usually means making stone and metal works. Working with heavy materials hurt my back, so I wanted to come up with a process that was light. I thought of photography — it’s paper and it’s light.

I glue the photos in place and use epoxy resin to varnish and seal the final work via




Marc Giai-Miniet  is a French artist who makes creepy and fascinating dioramas that tend to feature reproductions of human organs, crime scenes, submarines in basements and wait for it … libraries.

The miniature tableaus are terrific examples of art’s ability to transform seemingly predictable, mundane scenarios into absurd, freakish, and beautiful visual experiences.

Giai-Miniet’s libraries are detailed and striking, replete with book cover art, author names, and identifiable typography. Occasionally a diorama’s title will conjure a loose narrative, an obscure starting point from which the viewer might further consider the art via
