Imaginary is much more than a concept art, comics and illustration studio. With its “By-artists-for-artists” mantra and its small but ever-increasing cult-like online fan following, Imaginary truly represents a next-gen creative approach to the creative business by hot-housing its established and fresh new talents, delivering creative services and content to a global audience.
Imaginary has grown to a stable of 30 full-time digital artists between its two studios in Singapore and Jakarta in only 5 years. During that time, Imaginary artists serviced big-name international clients on major entertainment and promotional projects. As a testament of the studio’s dedication to quality and professionalism, most of these clients continue to be serviced by Imaginary to this day.
Some of the projects and properties handled by Imaginary include titles such as, Dragonlance Chronicles, GI Joe, Batman, Justice League, Superman, Exalted, Witchblade, Madam Mirage, Contra 4, F.E.A.R. NBA Street Basketball, Dungeons & Dragons, Powerpuff Girls, Call of Duty, DOTA, World of Warcraft, Warhammer, Soul Calibur 3 & 4, Street Fighter, Sleepy Hollow, Star Wars Galaxies, Legend of the Five Rings, Pathfinder, as well as promotional and licensing material for major motion pictures including Spiderman 3, Surf’s Up, and Batman: The Dark Knight.
The studio was also recently chosen to lead and create the concepts and designs for the multiplatform, Singapore-based animation LaMB animation project in collaboration with Animax and Peach Blossoms Media (Singapore).
While enjoying the opportunity for collaboration and to work on properties that they already love as fans, Imaginary also has its own original properties in development to be launched in 2009 for various markets such as comics, film, new media and merchandizing and for various demographics.By bringing together a powerhouse collective of a new generation of artists capable of delivering a diversity of creative approaches running the gamut of western to eastern styles, Imaginary is delivering creative services and content for the new global entertainment market.
Imaginary and its crew of artists continue to enjoy frequent cover and interior features with international art publications such as 2D Artist, ImagineFX, Artzmania,90+10 and international art annuals such as Spectrum, Exotic and Expose. The studio was even featured separately in FHM South Africa and FHM Singapore, in addition to appearances on television shows, radio segments and news programmes.
More importantly, the Imaginary team are fulfilling their dreams as artists and creative people by simply doing what they love, doing it well and doing it the way it needs to.
