James Paick is a concept artist for the gaming industry, working out of Los Angeles and is a graduate of Art Center College of Design.
Beyond that I know little, as his blog and web site don’t offer much in the way of biographical info, client lists or project credits.
I do know, however, that there are enough of his images online to get a good feeling for his work, which is atmospheric, full of artfully suggested details and often employs a limited palette to focus attention to the important parts of a composition.
Paick appears to work primarily digitally, but there is a nice section of traditional media sketches on his web site. The largest section in his online gallery is the environments section of the entertainment gallery.
