To me, the future of gaming is all about virtual reality. As a former Oculus Rift dev kit owner I am very excited about how virtual reality is going to open gaming up to a whole range of new experiences.
I wanted to create a piece that would express how life consuming VR could be in a humourous way. It's possible to read my illustration as an attack on the perils of escapism, but to me it's a tribute to the future of VR and living the dream...
I created this illustration by making the entire scene out of paper, photographing it, and then touching up any imperfections in photoshop. I have a bunch of other illustrations I've done using the same technique on my website www.joehookins.com
