Abstract

The world is only as big as what the artist creates. Fictional worlds are often neglected, narrow, and cliché. In order to immerse yourself in a story, the world must be believable. My intentions will be to create narrative-driven concept art and a graphic novel proposal for a fictional world. Presented in full color, I will be creating a world playing off the term ‘trash city.’ Instead of focusing on the dystopian aspects associated with ‘trash city’, my story will be a journey into a new world. Throughout the journey there will be adventure, discovery, friendships, and—of course—some baddies to fight along the way. I will fill this world with various environments, creatures, peoples, tools, and lifestyles that further the story. This is not a commentary on the environmental problems of our world but rather a fully fleshed out world that can amaze, frighten, and excite the audience.
