Jon Suanders updates his portfolio with a couple of new projects that are mind-bendingly beautiful. Really spectacular imagery sincerely, the kind of thing that makes you wonder how the the hell it was produced.

Wow. Mind-bendingly awesome work, primarily for motion, by the incredibly talented Jon Saunders.

Run down the list, he has created for them all, from PSYOP and Stardust to Shilo.
