Joe B. Livingston Jr.
Inspired by classic science fiction, noir, and horror, mixed with the counter-culture styles of the 1970’s and 80’s, on top of contemporary ideas. I create worlds where monsters are real and things really do go bump in the night! Dark places, where danger lurks around every corner. Worlds full of campy nostalgia and satire. Where strange, gritty, and memorable characters invade your dreams. Worlds where classic style has not been forgotten and whimsy is still possible. I will use any media necessary to make dreams become reality. From oil paint to digital, I can make it happen.
Movement and action combined with suspense, are essential components of my work. I wish for the viewer to feel as if they are part of the scene. Atmosphere is the other essential component, I use light, shadow and color in order to set moods and stir emotions. My work conveys the feeling of the moment, what the characters are experiencing and takes the observer into the story. Visual storytelling and world building that leaves the viewer wondering what happens next. I use my knowledge of the old to create something new.
So, imagine that this is your ticket to visit strange and exciting worlds. Meet strange and exciting characters, fight off hideous creatures, pilot an alien vehicle across an unimaginable landscape. It is all possible here! Now, strap in, hold on, and get ready for one hell of a thrill ride, but most of all, get ready to have fun!
