Lo­ca­tion: Canada Web:­man Email: ME DIA: Pho­to­shop A for­mer ab­stract oil painter turned mo­bile game artist, Si­mon has delved fur­ther into the realms of il­lus­tra­tion. Grow­ing up with the works of Pa­tri­cia McKil­lip, Kinuko Y Craft and Hayao Miyazaki, Si­mon’s art de­picts dream-like fan­tasy worlds, with vague nar­ra­tives only slightly in­formed by their ti­tles. “I pre­fer to cre­ate works that ex­ist away from the clang of fan­tasy bat­tles and re­side in the qui­eter, if not eerier parts of those worlds,” he ex­plains

The il­lus­tra­tor fell in love with dig­i­tal art by par­tic­i­pat­ing in, and later lead­ing, the Crea­ture of the Week com­pe­ti­tions on Con­cep­ and main­tains a healthy in­ter­est in crea­ture de­sign. When he’s not work­ing on free­lance projects or his own art, Si­mon in­dulges him­self in East Asian cook­ing and craft­ing table­top game cam­paigns.
