Ian McQue is a concept artist, illustrator and art director for the gaming industry. He is currently working for Rockstar North, and gaming aficionados will recognize the several Grand Theft Auto titles to his credit, along with an number of other games.
McQue works in both traditional and digital media, the latter including Photoshop, Illustrator and 3d Studio Max.
When not working, McQue likes to add to his flotilla of steampunk airships. Wonderfully realized, improbably heavy, they appear battered and patched, as though the aerial equivalent of the junks and salvaged ships one might find in an off the map Pacific port, trading in God-knows-what, plying the currents in the grey skies of another place or time.
You can find a nice big introductory batch of his flying ships on Concept Ships, where his work was chosen for the Monthly header this month.
