This style, is the best comic style ever. I absolutely love the touch of surrealism and the sunny industrial setting. Reminds me of the Animatrix!

Hey thanks for the feature! This is awesome.

I really need to update my website… But you guys can track me further at fox-orian.deviantart.com!

Also, that wouldn’t be the first time my style has been described as FLCL. FLCL was a big influence on me several years ago, and its sweet, sweet residue is still stuck on me today.

I’m feeling a combination of Mirror’s Edge and Jet Set Radio Future. Awesome style with a lot of personality and uniqueness.

His work is very vibrant and dynamic, but it feels a little sterile which seems to prevent it from being too emotive. Maybe that’s the artist’s intention. But I feel like if it was a little less clean and careful it would tell more of a story and the viewer could connect more with it. The last one appeals to me most for this reason.
Stunning work though.

The pictures somehow remind me of Mirror’s Edge.

Lita, that’s exactly what I was thinking! The monocolor-yet-vibrant walls are what bring it out, I think.

Totally mirrors edge. If second picture doesnt remind you of mirrors edge then the backpack being carted out of the subway on the fourth one down should, simply because it IS the backpack from Mirrors edge (go figure.)

Scenes like these always remind me that we are living in a future we could not have imagined 10 years ago. Most of these images have nothing hugely futuristic and most look like they could be from any big city: Tokyo, LA or wherever; and yet they exude an intensely Scifi vibe all the same. Just like that short in the Animatrix…

Hey, it’s me chiming in answering some questions!

For those wondering about the Mirror’s Edge influence, you guys would be right in that the game was a major influence in my work during my last year in Art college. I had heavy interest in Swedish graphic design beforehand, [IKEA for example,] so when I got my hands on Mirror’s Edge, it only pushed me over the limit to attempt that type of style myself.

To TJ: The bag in the image is indeed a runners bag. On DevianART, the description for that image lists the bag as an “Easter Egg Homage” to Mirror’s Edge and what it did to help propel my artistic abilities forward. The team who have worked on Mirror’s Edge have seen my work before, and they love the inspiration I’ve drawn from the game. The second image [the yellow one] is a direct reference to Mirror’s Edge as well. At that point in my schooling, I had never created a scene before with ambient color bleeding, so I used the yellow walls often found in the game to attempt it.

Today my work has departed greatly from the style of Mirror’s Edge — mostly because I was never looking to copy the style for my real professional work — you could consider these images as being exercises I did for myself during college.
It’s merely an influence on my latest images — while I’m drawing more influence these days from my Boston surroundings, Tekkonkinkreet, classics like Cowboy Bebop and FLCL, and real places like Tokyo.

He is a sham. Somone asian draw these. Or used a CAD monkey from Asia, otherwise, he would have spelled industrial correctly. Tell him to stop watching animation and go back to work.

I love this style, it’s really clean but backs off from total design school sterility. I’m always impressed when I come across an effective graphic colour palette that doesn’t feel contrived.

@Alex:

Hahahahahaha, funny.

No really, I can’t tell if you’re joking. I’m pretty sure you are.
