instructor profiles Justin Lamperski
My name is Justin Lamperski and currently I am the lead Weapons and Vehicles artist at Sledgehammer Games. I grew up loving games and developed that into a passion for creating them. I use to mod games in my spare time, anything that had an editor I would spend many hours a day toying with to make what I found interesting. It didn't feel like work to me so I knew that I had found something I could spend my life doing. My career started in environments. I spent about 7 years of my career going from an associate to senior environment artist. After shipping a few titles I became interested in a position offered to me in Weapons and Vehicles. I didn't look back after that. In total I have about 15 years experience in video game art creation. I love what I do and the people I work with. I honestly couldn't see myself doing anything else.
