I love concept art because it isn’t the thing, it’s meant to inform the thing.
It’s not complete, it’s suggestive.
It doesn’t tell a story, it creates a vibe.
Instead of illustrating what happens next, it seeks maximally resonant images.
It’s visual poetry—a seed, planted.
Artists: Daniel Lopez Munoz, Glenn Hernandez, Ryan Brothers, Ken Marceau Nakayama, and Daniel Oxford—all 2021 Concept Art Association finalists.
