Welcome to my my Portfolio Page.

This is where you'll find my professional work (and some personal pieces as well).

As always, I'm unable to post my current work, as it's for films that have yet to hit the big screen.

Don't forget to visit my BLOG. There's more of my work there, plus a bunch of other fun stuff.

Alien Project

It's been a while since I posted any professional work...mostly because I can't post work from films that haven't been released yet.

A few years back I did some early development work for a film I'll call it the "Alien Project". I worked on it for about a year, then I left the studio. Last I heard, they'd shelved the here's some of my work. Sorry, I can't divulge the story...just in case they decide to start back up again.

These utilize a cool mirror image technique developed by Scott Robertson. Check out his new book Alien Race, published by Design Studio Press. It's awesome!!! There are several examples of alien heads done using the same technique. Thanks Scott!


This one was inspired by a sketch by John Bevelheimer.





Architecture made out of giant seed pods (WTF???) (^-^)

Architecture made out of salvaged spaceship parts. (See "Crash Site" above.) Sorry, I can't explain the connection...but it was a story point.
The basic design for this was inspired by the early work of visionary architect, Lebbeus Woods.

Paul, those aliens and the WTF seedpods just made my night. :) Fantastic, everything's just beautiful...

...and I LOVE that salvage architecture. It's exactly like an alien steampunk jewellery design waiting to happen!

So, so glad to see some more of this gorgeous stuff, I hope you're keeping well! (I keep saying I'm going to email you and Armand and Marcelo and Marcos, and I never quite get around to it before the next busy period kicks in, but I will before Christmas!)

Marcos Mateu said...

Beautiful stuff Paul.
I hope if they bring 'it' back up they will put these designs to good use. I still remember the first time I saw the 'blue tones concept' for the city. I couldn't have been more impressed.

Dilanka S said...

Madness! Too awesome Paul, Your blue city environment and salvage City..just beautiful.

mellowsmoothe said...

Hey stranger, good to see you post something new. Yeah I remember these from when we worked on this project. Great stuff. I hope things are well. I will have to email you soon.

Munchanka said...

Fantastic stuff! I love the twisted stacks. Your illustrations would make fun video game levels!

jilustra said...

Cara parabens você é um fenomeno da art!!

Lewis Wadsworth said...

What nice work! I recently found your salvage architecture images during a random search for something else entirely. As an architect, I immediately wondered if they had anything to do with Leb Woods. And of course, you confirm it here.

I'm starting to think that concept art really is at the top of the "design heap" these days. Artists such as yourself seem to be so much more imaginative, more talented and less constrained than the overrated drafts-people (aside from rarities such as Woods) that seem to populate my field.

Gracia said...

I love all of them!
specially the little alien that looks more for the children!
I can't believe you can produce work so fast !

SkyeMarieee said...

These are my favorite ones I've seen from you so far (:
I haven't talked to you in so long! How are you guys? How's Amelia?
I stumbled upon the card she sent me with her school picture when I moved to Washington.

Your work is amazing as usual (:
