Visual Inspiration: Robin Olausson

The art of Robin Olausson

My buddy Darby shared concept artist Robin Olausson’s work with me and I had to post it here. It has that blend of grimy realism with a sharp pop of color that I absolutely love ( if you read Stars you’d know why.) Check out a few of Robin’s pieces below (click on them to see ’em bigger) or check out all his work over on his deviantART page. Good stuff.

Visual Inspiration: Nivanh Chanthara

If you follow my Pinterest Boards or have read The Stars Were Right you know I love epic megalopolis cityscapes. When I came across this piece from Nivanh Chanthara I had to share it here and figured it’d be great visual inspiration for someone out there. (Some of his work already appears in my board for Stars.)  There’s something so otherworldly yet ultimately approachable about his work, both futuristic yet grounded.  It’s good stuff. Check out his latest work on Deviant Art or see a larger version of “Babel” here.
