My Bio
My name is Neil Blevins, and I've been an artist as long as I can remember. Raised on a healthy dose of scifi and fantasy films, books, and videogames, I started off painting and drawing traditionally, and then got into computer graphics while living in my hometown of Pointe Claire, in Quebec, Canada. After getting a BFA in Design Art at Concordia University, I moved to California to work in the entertainment field at companies such as Blur Studio, Pixar, and my own freelance studio Soulburn Studios, creating concept design and production art for video games, animated and live action films, commercials, TV, and ride films. I have worked on projects such as The Incredibles, Wall-e, Up, The Good Dinosaur, and many others. I primarily focus on alien environments, futuristic robots, and scifi vehicles, but have created art and designs for a broad range of genres and subjects. I also make narrative art books, create digital art tools and write art related lessons and tutorials to give back to the community who's been so gracious at helping me get to where I am today. I currently work at Monolith Productions in the Seattle area.

Glad you like them! I actually ditched the numbering scheme a little while ago, as all of these are going to be a part of a megastructures book, and so rather than their arbitrary numbers they have now they'll be placed in the book in a better order. So don't fear about number 7 being missing, and hope you'll check out the book when its finished, will be posting about it here!
Glad you like it. As for novels, the answer is sort of, I make narrative artbooks, which are scifi stories with artwork as well. My first book Inc was released a few years ago: www.neilblevins.com/books/inc/… and I hope that Heart Of The Giant (which this piece is from) will be my third book.
