John Thacker
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
I started drawing with serious intent in 2004, and since then pretty much all of my working hours have been art related. I have been a concept artist professionally since 2006 and have worked mostly on video games, which is has been a fantastic career. I have been very fortunate to get to work with some very talented people on many projects over the years including Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Left 4 Dead 2, Team Fortress 2, Windborne, Defense Grid, Defense Grid 2, Defense Grid 2 Enhanced VR Edition, CHROMA, a bunch of unreleased/unannounced stuff, as well as freelance work with some really cool folks out there. I have worked with many great organizations including Nintendo, Valve, Hidden Path Entertainment, Harmonix, Sony, Oculus, Microsoft, Imagine FX, CG Cookie, 3D Total, Digipen Institute of Technology, and others.
I grew up in the 8-bit and 16-bit generations, with my desire always being to be involved in making video games; to contributing something highly creative to the type of experiences that shaped much of my creative outlook and thinking. The game industry, although flawed in its own ways, as all professional fields are, has allowed me to realize this dream, and for that I am immensely grateful.
