Aaron Becker worked as a concept designer for Disney and Lucasfilm until he happily decided to do his own thing. He created his wonderful Journey using traditional watercolors combined with 3D software Maya. Quest is his next book and it’s full of gorgeous illustrations of dream worlds.

Here’s the trailer for the new book:

Some selected illustrations from the books. Aaron tells me there’s an app coming soon that will use 3D too. I wish he made a game with all this material.
