The Art of Dan Morison
If you know my Instagram account @papageek_you know that I am a big fan of the Warhammer 40000 wargame by Games Workshop. I spent hours during my teenagehood building miniatures from this game and playing with them during epic battles, and I recently fell back into the hobby. It never quite left me in the end ! Warhammer 40K has one of the deepest and passionate scifi background I’ve ever read, and I’ve always been a fan of its lore. Quickly said, at the 41st millenium, the Imperium of Mankind is about to collapse, attacked on many fronts by xenos armies, but also by the forces of Chaos. Those 4 gods of destruction unleash hordes of daemons, war engines and corrupted humans against mankind. But the Imperium can count on his mighty Space Marines, more than humans soldiers in mighty armors to fight back.
This should so be a series of movies… Anyway, I love this universe, and I love British artist’s Dan Morison’s vision of it. His graphic universe is sharp, powerful, with amazing colors and character design. This artist pays tribute to the 30th Millenium era of the game, when Space Marines loyal to the Emperor fought against their former brothers corrupted by the Chaos Gods.
Wether you like/know Warhammer 40K, you definitely should have a look at his amazing portfolio !
