I’ll start out by saying that I don’t know much about Justin Cherry.
I know that he does terrific images, sometimes in comics outline style and sometimes painted in both traditional and digital media. I know that he is mentioned often (but briefly) on CGI sites, and at one time, he worked at Troika Games. I know that he has been featured in the Expose 1 collection of digital illustration, and I know that I like his work.
He is working on a personal project called Unreal Doco. He has a blog here that hasn’t done much to answer my basic questions but does have some more of his drawings and sketches.
What I don’t know is what he does professionally, who his clients are, where his work has been published (other then Expose), where he studied, or any of the other background info it’s usually easy to come by about artists and illustrators on the web.
I don’t know if he is intentionally keeping his personal (and professional) information out of the spotlight, culturing a mysterioso persona or simply doesn’t think that kind of information is worth posting.
I also don’t have a clue what Collected Tears of the Weeping Nivbed refers to. I do know that I’ll keep stopping back to see if he’s posted any more of his terrific images.
