Over the years I have worked on Abbots Book many times. Created by friend and colleague Michael Conolly its a dark and haunting tale of an evil abbot and the community he draws into the underworld. My role has been to help Mike visualize characters, settings and architecture that support his story. The latest iteration from 2016 was to be produced as a VR experience. My interest and experience in curvilinear, infinite perspective could be put to good use as I finally got to design in VR! Programs like Gravity Sketch were just coming out but I had been creating custom, HDRI concept art maps for visual effects already. This gave me a pipeline to generate fantasy environments in Photoshop that could be applied to VR easily. These paintings allow the viewer to be immersed in Mike’s imagination through my creative hand.
