2d characters by Joshua Ely Batterson
The possibility of creating perfectly photo realistic digital human beings makes its opposite even more interesting. In 2011 Icelandic superstar, Björk showed the power of abstraction in the app release of Biophilia, merging interpretation of nature and music in an interactive appstore spectacle.
American Joshua Ely Batterson describes himself as a newcomer to the world of digital design, spending a multitude of hours playing with character creation in Photoshop. His science fiction inspired illustrations makes it easy to imagine them as interactive and Joshua himself plans to advance into the world of 3d graphics in the soon future.
Joshuas highly abstract character work tickles the imagination in a time where the relation between computer graphics and reality are very closely knit.
