Ash Thorp was into some really interesting projects his whole career, but definitely Ghost in the Shell is one of his highest moments. I have nothing to say other than awesome for this whole film art direction, but his collaboration on this project is something to praise for a really long time.
His experimentation and look dev is really impressive. The volume of work is also very overwhelming. His work includes everything from animation tests to final assets implemented in the film.
