Like most of my projects, it was born out of experimenting with new techniques. I was actually trying to create some realistic smoke simulations, but realized I could create more vibrant and organic outcomes by changing certain variables. As I was experimenting, the results reminded me of translucent jellyfish swarms, called blooms.

It was a lot of trial and error… Experimenting with colors, texture, and simulations to get the effect I was looking for. I wanted it to feel really complex and organic although it was created digitally.

I was looking at a lot of deep sea videos and images of jellyfish blooms. It’s actually a weird phenomenon which scientists are still trying to figure out. They reminded me of psychedelic landscapes which inspired the project.

I’m not sure I have a style… I like to experiment with a lot of new techniques and form them within a conceptual framework. My inspiration comes from a pretty broad range, but lately I’ve been really inspired by other digital artists. I like to scour Behance, Cargo, and Designspiration in particular.
