John: Hi, I'm John! I'm the dorky guy that runs on coffee and big dreams. I've been an artist my whole life, but a pro for 13 years. I've done a lot of everything in my 3 years at
Konami Computer Entertainment, and my 10 years at Blizzard Entertainment, but for the last almost 8 years, I've been an illustrator, concept artist, visual development artist and character designer working on all of Blizzard's games...most notably Overwatch! My own personal tastes are pretty different from Blizzard's games though. I like drawing sexy ladies and cute things for fun...add in a sprinkling of barbarians, pirates, ninjas, wizards, magic, and animals, and you'll get a idea of the things I see in the world I'm building within my own IP...Miscreants and Thieves!

Justin: Justin Goby Fields is founder and president of Ironklad Studios located in Hollywood, California and has been working in the concept art field for the last 5 years and has worked on several films, games, and tv shows. He is an instructor at Brainstorm and Schoolism and has traveled the world discussing his techniques and insight into the
film and game industry.

Gurmukh: Gurmukh Bhasin is an architectural designer turned 3D concept artist, who currently hails in Los Angeles. His addiction to adventure and all that is creative, was fostered at a young age -- boarding school in India, architecture school in Arizona, and
skateboarding through the streets of Barcelona, by way of graduate school at the Southern California Institute of Architecture [sciARC]. Gurmukh's work draws
significantly from his life experiences, and provides a constant source of inspiration as he continues to explore the seemingly untapped intersections between reality and imagination.
