Wesley Allsbrook is an artist, art director, and writer who started as editorial illustrator and comic book creator before working at Oculus Story Studio as the lead artist on Dear Angelica. Allsbrook has been working with Quill since 2015, and she created animation vignettes within Sun Ladies, and recently collaborated with the Washington Post on 12 Seconds of Gunfire focusing on gun violence in America.
Allsbrookwas showing excerpts from Cosmoramarama at the Spatial Realities art show in Santa Monica in October 2018, and I had a chance to catch up with her to talk with her about her journey into VR, how comic books inspire her spatial storytelling, her experiments trompe-l’œil effects in 3D where she creates shallow spaces that seem deep, the open problem of closed licensing of art creating from VR art programs, future projects exploring consent of objects and the architecture of illustrated poetry spread out through spaces, and some of her thoughts on the state of the VR industry.
