We wanted our attendees to get to know the incredible talent in the Artist Alley a little better, so we asked each of our artists to answer a couple questions about themselves and their art.
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is Isaiah Sherman and I am a game developer currently working on our indie project Gaimoria. I have worked in the game industry as an artist for over 6 years working on games like Destiny by Bungie and inFamous from Sucker Punch.
What was the first thing you made/wrote/drew?
I have been creating art since before I can remember. I had to have drawn something related to Mario Brothers when I was a toddler!
Tell us about your creative process, from the beginning of a typical piece to its completion?
As a game developer, I work on a broad range of tasks, all of which are incredible diverse in their execution. However, the tools I work most with are Photoshop, Maya, and Unity.
Who or what are your influences?
Video games and video game art are my main influences. I do not have any single favorite artists, but love to see the things game devs are always making.
What plans do you have for the future of your art?
Everything regarding video games. I make video games and art for video games. That’s how it will be until my dying day!
Do you have any good advice for emerging artists?
Work hard and never give up on your passion. Talent is fictional, only dedication matters.
What do you hope people get out of you artwork/writing/etc?
To date, what works of yours are most satisfied with?
The projects I was involved in with Destiny and inFamous at Bungie and Sucker Punch.
Will you have any convention exclusives or deals available at CCH?
This will be our first convention so all the merch will be our very first run. Our merch will become more refined with time, so if you help support us by buying some of our stickers or T-shirts you will have the first merch we have ever created! Cool!
