Lorin Wood has been a conceptual designer for nearly 20 years, having his imagination first sparked by the work of Syd Mead, Joe Johnston and Ralph McQuarrie. He has worked in visual effects, previsu- alization and animation, but his focus has always been in art direction and conceptual design. His most recent work has been at game development studio Gearbox Software in Dallas, Texas. He is the curator of the blog and editor of the book series Nuthin’ But Mech with Design Studio Press.
Wood does not prefer one particular toolset, so many of his projects jump between analog tools and digital. Here’s a sampling of his work.
