Fandom Friday – Francis Tsai

Posted: December 14, 2012 by davidsugden in Concept Art, Fandom Fridays, gamers assemble

Sorry folks that todays Fandom is a tad late but nether the less here it is. Todays conceptual Artist has worked with EA, Rockstar, DC, Marvel and Eidos. Hes got some very intriguing artwork and strong ideas. The difference with todays post out of the others is this guy uses his eyes to paint the concepts. Albeit the ones below are done with his hand there are some good ones up on his main site HERE.

The reason he paints with the use of his eyes is that in 2010 he was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease in 2010, a degenerative and paralysing disease for which there is no cure. He lost the ability to use his arms and hands, and has such not held a pencil since early 2011. While this should have crippled his ability to draw, he soon found that he could use his toes on an iPhone, so began using that to paint images using his toes.

Then when he then lost the use of his toes, he used initiative, using a machine to track the movement of his eyeballs he has successfully got back into making art. Check his website for more images. But really what an outstanding bloke.
