Annis Naeem was born in 1987 in Pakistan. He moved to New Jersey when he was 10 and thought he was destined to be a doctor or a lawyer, based on his family's expectations. At 18, he realized that his love for drawing and painting was greater than just the sketches in his chemistry class notebook, and he prepared for a move to California in hopes of receiving an education in concept design at Art Center, he applied and was accepted. In his first term he met Scott Robertson who convinced him that the new entertainment design program had the balance of design and illustration Naeem was looking for. He soon switched majors and landed an internship with Robertson the next summer through which their first collaboration book, DRIVE resulted.

 

From the beginning, Daniel Gardner had a passion for art. Born in 1989, he grew up in a family of creative people and designers. He took figure drawing, painting and animation classes in high school along with product and transportation design classes through Art Center College of Design's Saturday High program. Gardner had always dreamed of attending Art Center to major in transportation. Although, after a year at Pasadena City College, ready to apply to Art Center, he became aware of entertainment design and how it was going to become a new major at the school. Having immediately fallen in love with concept design, he changed his focus, but still has an immense love for automobiles.

he 128-page book is filled with concept sketches and paintings. There are lots of aircrafts coming in all sorts of interesting shapes and designs. There are bulky ones, those that look like they have sails, vertically skewed ones, others, and one that I found the front to look like Iron Man. However, there are no gigantic deep space exploration crafts like those from Star Trek.
There is also an invited guest artist section featuring work from Harald Belker, Ian McQue, Thom Tenery, David Hobbins, Darren Bacon and Joon Ahn.It's a great book recommend to those who like sci-fi flying ships and art. It's an inspiring collection if you're looking for ideas.
