Josh is pur­su­ing two par­al­lel ca­reers: one in vis­ual de­vel­op­ment and an­other in com­mu­ni­ca­tion de­sign, which he’s study­ing at Pitts­burgh’s Carnegie Mel­lon Univer­sity. The artist con­structs nar­ra­tives through draw­ings, paint­ings, mo­tion graph­ics, ty­pog­ra­phy and games. While much of his work to date is fan­tasy art, he is open to ex­plor­ing all sorts of gen­res and styles.

“When it comes to vis­ual de­vel­op­ment, I’m in­spired by the works of Sparth, Hayao Miyazaki, Jaime Jones, Theo Prins, Tom Sc­holes, Ling Xiang, Raphael La­coste and Thom Ten­ery. There are many more.”

Cube World “I did this as the first in a se­ries for a com­pu­ta­tional de­sign startup, the Lev­i­tated Toy Fac­tory. I wanted to cap­ture a sense of awe and dis­cov­ery while ad­her­ing to the theme of com­pu­ta­tional de­sign (hence the cubes). While paint­ing this, I had fun play­ing with scale and depth.”

Th e City of Sele­doa “I painted this for Mojo Game Stu­dios’ up-and­com­ing ti­tle, Aderyn’s Cra­dle. The scene is a de­pic­tion of a player look­ing at their map, high above the ru­ins of an an­cient cliff city in one of the four open worlds the game will fea­ture.”

Up­grade Time “This is an­other scene from Aderyn’s Cra­dle. It’s one of many lo­ca­tions where play­ers can up­grade their weapons by per­form­ing a cer­e­mony that in­volves bathing their weapon in a sa­cred medium – in this case, pip­ing-hot lava.”
