    Scholarly Sources on Concept Art?

    I was wondering if anyone here could help me with a bit of an intellectual conundrum I've been facing...
    I'm a third year architecture student, and I desperately want to write a research paper exploring the relationship of concept art and video game architecture to previous schools of thought (such as Archigram and Futurism) However, I'm finding it extremely hard to find any sort of "scholarly" sources that treat either concept art or video games with serious academic rigor. I'm certain that most of you can appreciate the immense importance of concept art in the contemporary art scene, so do any of you know of sources I could use?

    Not sure if this is the kind of thing you are after, but try:

    Freeman, D., Creating Emotion In Games: The Craft and Art of Emotioneering, New Riders Press, 2003, ISBN:1592730078

    I did read a peer review journal article a while back on the psychological motifs of concept art and game plot design, unfortunately I do not know the name, only that it exists (I read it over a year ago). So, there is hope for some juicy reading out there. It dissected half life 2 and quake 4 in particular detail.
