New Simian Style Visions
A vision carved on paper, set free. Just something I had lying around I wanted to show you guys.
I have been working at Thinkwell since the beginning of the year and this is so not what I have been doing. It is a stark contrast from the studio theme park work I have been doing that obviously I can’t show you for contractual reasons, but wish I could. It sucks when you don’t own your work, but I will get inside your heads one way or another.
Some cool stuff for you Monkey Kingdom Simian-heads, I did character design and other work for a theme park in China which was a blast. The theme park was based on the story Journey to the West: Legend of the Monkey King.
Here’s a little something from the Gorrilaz artist Jamie Hewlett on the Monkey King for the Beijing Olympics.
It was a dream project to work on the Journey of the West theme park including being able to design the legendary characters. I even got to design some Journey of the West rides which for me creatively was breaking some new ground.
Anyway, I hope you can appreciate the free-flow Simian vision.
