Josan Gonzalez "The Future is Now" is his first published artbook the concept is very straight forward, a depiction of a crazy near future, plagued with technology and over the top characters and situations. Our interaction with technology and specially virtual reality is a big part of this personal universe.
While the ideas are brand new there is a lot of inspiration from cult movies like Blade Runner or Ghost in the Shell, comics like Darrow's Harboiled or Moebius The incal, or novels like Gibson's Neuromancer.
I would describe the style as sketchy and spontaneous, I give a lot of importance to detail and color choices, I keep the rendering style of the illustrations very simple so I can focus on doing impactful color combinations.
Work hard and be critical with your work.
*The artbook it's currently sold out, I'm gonna run a kickstarter for the second volume + reprints of the first one, starting March 2016, stay tuned.*
