The Art of Johnson Ting - Neo Japan 2202

Johnson Ting is a Malaysian concept artist whose portfolio consists of futuristic helicarriers, armor-clad desert marines, re-imagined Marvel heroes and writhing biomechanical mecha à la Evangelion. His most impressive and well-known body of work however is probably his 'Neo Japan 2202' series, a collection of thematically connected pieces set within the titular far-east metropolis where private police androids and renegade drones clash in a hail of gunfire and neon lights.

Johnson is currently collecting fan input with the intention of turning the Neo Japan illustrations into a 200-plus page book complete with new artwork, posters, in-world documents depicting a fully fleshed-out backstory and possibly a soundtrack CD! After what I've seen of his work so far, I sincerely hope this becomes a reality. Check out more of this awesome series after the break!
