FEATURED ARTISTS OF June/July 2015: Damarcus Holbrook and Janna Bock

We'll be shining the artist spotlight on the fantastic works of Damarcus Holbrook and Janna Bock for the months of June and July 2015.  

Currently a senior designer/artist at Blizzard Entertainment, where he also does level design, Damarcus has over 15 years of game development experience.  He’s worked on AAA titles such as ‘World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor’ at Blizzard Entertainment, ‘Fire Fall‘ from Red 5 Studios, Konami’s ‘Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes’, ‘Dark Kingdom’ at Sony, EA’s ‘James Bond 007: From Russia With Love’, Valve’s ‘Half Life 2’ and more. He’s a unique artist in that he not only designs aspects of the game, but creates assets such as props, the environment, and characters for the games.

Janna is a graduate of the 2010 class of Cal State University, Long Beach, earning a BFA in illustration, where she discovered her passion for illustrative entertainment art. She has done freelance work for LA based animation companies and visual development work on upcoming shows and games. She most recently completed two published children’s books and has two more in the works. Janna’s style is often whimsical with appealing narratives, vibrant colors and characteristics born from her love of animation, fairy tales, and Disney films.

A little info about the new art gallery

Located in the culturally rich downtown artists village of Santa Ana (DTSA)

An art gallery by David Luong

 

In April of 2014, David and Steven bought a live/work artist loft in DTSA.  David wanted to showcase his work as well as the work of other amazing digital artists he has met through out his career as a VFX artist. The artist loft is a unique place where you can have your home high up above, while also have a work space below for projects and creative work.  Together, Steven and David chose to turn it into an art gallery to be open once a month in conjunction with the monthly art walk of Santa Ana. The grand opening was on August 2nd, 2014 far surpassing expectations. View the grand opening photos here.

Photonic Playground it was dubbed, a gallery space featuring digital art work manifesting in the physical realm.  View the gallery space photos here. The art gallery will be curated by David, and is to feature the finest digital artists in the industry who have shown great skill in digital matte painting, 3D modeling, animation, photography, illustration, and character art. Limited edition large and small prints will be for sale by David and guest artists in the exhibitions.

David Luong is a visual effects artist working in the video games and film industry, a co-author of d'Artiste: Matte Painting 3 book and digital matte painting instructor of CGSociety.org.  He is currently a senior cinematic artist at Blizzard Entertainment and has worked on AAA game titles such as World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone.  You can check out more of his work at his website http://davidluong.net

Steven Dowling Jr is an avid gamer with strong business sense who also works in the video game industry.  He is currently a Senior Admin to the World of Warcraft team at Blizzard Entertainment and was the Executive Admin to former Chief Creative Officer, Rob Pardo at Blizzard.
