Concept Art

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.
