Su Jian

Su Jian, concept art
Su Jian is a concept artist based in Beijing, China and working in the film industry.

Beyond that, I know little. I haven’t found an official website other than a presence on ArtStation, and that has no information on projects of companies worked for.

Su Jian’s illustrations are sometimes in the vein of common concept art themes, but often more eccentric, with interesting subjects and approaches.

Norman Rockwell Santa

And to All a Good Night, Norman Rockwell
And to All a Good Night, Norman Rockwell

This image is sourced from an interesting 2015 Wired article on Rockwell’s photographic reference for this and a number of his other holiday themed paintings.

As is often the case with Rockwell paintings, much of the charm for me is in the little touches — the position of the hand holding the pipe and the rendering of the wooden chair; but I also love the loose, cartoony feeling of the illustration overall, and that wonderful wide-eyed, frazzled expression on the face of the Jolly One.

Seems like it’s been that kind of year for many of us. Here’s hoping 2018 brings some relief (even if we have to wait for November).

Merry Christmas and Happy Other Holidays!
