Oh, man, today's artist actually posts *concept art* on his blog instead of just marketing illustrations! I have to thank the "Art of Dreamworks Animation" for reminding me of Christian. I had bought his book "Kolonie", but never made the connection with the rest of his amazing career. I love his stuff....he makes sketchy watercolours work for concept art!
I literally just downloaded every image on his website ;) It has become my new mission to talk to Christian in real life.
Seth Rutledge is a visual developer and concept artist for the animation and video game industries, a photographer and a coffee snob living in Vancouver, British Columbia. Before he discovered illustration, he received a CSCI/Math degree from UNC-Charlotte, and has lived and worked all over the United States and Canada. He has run marathons, taught English in Japan, been CTO for a pharma marketing company and done fashion photography in NYC. Seth has two albums he wrote and played keyboards on, and he plays the theramin whenever he gets the chance. Seth spends so much time in coffee shops drawing that he is mentioned in online reviews. He would love a career drawing elves and goblins for a living.
