I like the amount of energy that Jordan packs into each of his drawings -- the artist cites his interest in science fiction, martial arts, and war stories as a source of inspiration for the majority of his drawings. The imagery in Jordan’s portfolio hints at and references a variety of styles and inspirations, from comics, to film, to television.

The energy that’s captured in Jordan’s drawings comes out especially in his storyboard work. The slightly simplified figures and focus on blocking herein reminds me of work by fellow storyboard artist Hendrik Gericke, and showcases the intended movement of dynamic characters and objects. Jordan’s concept artworks, likewise, showcase an eye for future movement and dynamism.
