Neuromancer - Chiba by PHATandy Neuromancer - Chiba by PHATandy
Just a quick concept painting for a Visual Developement project based on the city of Chiba (Japan) in Neuromancer, by William Gibson.

Worked up from an image taken from Google maps, with the Street View mode.

As a Gibson fan, I have to admit: This picture meets the atmosphere of Chiba better than I could in my dreams!

Hello PHATandy, I am currently doing doctoral research in urban studies on the representation and image of the cyberpunk city. Can you tell more broadly about your creative process? How do you work and how to re-imagine the space of the city from Gibson novel? What about conventional or innovative drawing techniques in your work? Any data is important to me and I will give due credit. Also I would love to show your work in my research if I have your permission. Your work seems important to be researched, discussed and disseminated. Sincerely, M. Mr. Jorge Octavio Ocaranza (my email:

Hi :) (Smile) I really love your artwork here. I'm curating a blog themed around cyperpunk for a postgrad project and would like to link your image to my blog. The conditions of the project are that all media must adhere to strict copyright, so I would love it if you could give me permission to use the image. I will be able to link back to your deviantart profile and will credit you as the artist. Cheers. Tim

Provided its non-profit, go for it. A link back would be great.
A link to the blog would be interesting too, would love to see what its about.
