Art Direction


At Zynga I worked on 7 or 8 games over 3 years including some game pitches and game art development as well as art direction and team management. The teams I managed usually consisted of about 10 artists and UI designers.  The teams I art directed were: Hidden Chronicles, Hidden Shadows and Mafia Wars 3. Below are some concepts and production art that I did on several of these games. 

I spent much of 2013 in Beijing art directing a team to reinvent Zynga's Mafia Wars franchise.  Below are a handful of my concept paintings, 3D blockouts, idea boards, and visual guidance for the Chinese art team.
