Yesterday i was lucky enough to meet American Mcgee in London, the game designer behind the amazing Alice series. We was able to talk for a while about his style of art, creative process, inspiration and general stuff.
I am a huge fan of the art style used in his Alice games, they are very dark, twisted and give off the most amazing atmosphere. I find his work truely inspiring.
While he is a games designer, i do feel that the media of games is really a form of art or greate use of graphic design. The looks ad so much to the feel and atmophere of the game and really draw the viewer in.
I was lucky enough to pick up the Art book of the game and get it signed by American Mcgee telling me to “keep it mad” It is an amazing book and i think it will be a great source of inspiration.
