We interview Loïc 'e338' Zimmermann about his Kickstarter project with 3dtotal, which brings together an epic collection of art with exclusive rewards for backers!
e338: The Art of Loïc Zimmermann is an exciting Kickstarter project between 3dtotal Publishing and concept artist, Loïc Zimmermann. The project is now live on Kickstarter and waiting for your pledges! We talk to Loïc to find out more about the book and some of the incredible backer rewards up for grabs...
3dtotal: Why e338? What's the name all about?
I've been using that name for 12 years now. I was in a spooky hotel in Romania, on the Black Sea shore, supervising the VFX for an obscure music video. My previous nickname was getting old and I wanted a change. There was a can of Coca Cola on my desk – back then I was drinking it by the gallon! I saw the name of this acid in the ingredients: e338. That was it!
The mock-ups show how we envision the book will look. The cover and sample spread pages feature girls from Loïc's impressive 'Binaural' art series
3dt: What's your vision of the book and how will it differ to other art books out there?
I specifically like the fact that this 'art of' book covers a lot of media – not just concept art, but also 3D, photography, mixed media... It's a great way to discover this little world of mine and how all those different aspects of my work are, in many ways, connected with one another.
Loïc is a Jack of all trades and a master of all of them! Here are a few samples from his portfolio, showing his expertise in concept art, illustration and 3D
