Joshua Viers
Artist | Professional | Film & Animation
United States
While studying at the University of Cincinnati I had the opportunity to design toys for Hasbro, shoes for Adidas and consumer electronics for Samsung and Acer. I graduated from the University of Cincinnati with my BS in Industrial Design in 2001.

After school I worked as an Art Assistant in the Industrial Light and Magic art department which was a fantastic experience that allowed me to make some good friends. After ILM I had the great opportunity to work for Doug Chiang (at Pexart/Iceblink Studios/ImageMovers Digital) who was the person to promote me to the position of Concept Artist for a feature film. The first movie I created concept work for was Spielberg's adaptation of H.G. Wells' "War of the Worlds." I worked on several films under Doug's direction for the next five years including "The Polar Express, "Monster House", "Beowulf" and "A Christmas Carol." While working for Doug our small art department of approximately 15 people changed hands (and names) a couple of times until it officially became a Disney company called ImageMovers Digital.

While working for Doug I was approached by The Orphanage for the position of Lead Concept Artist on Frank Miller's adaptation of Will Eisner's "The Spirit", which I enthusiastically accepted. After that contract I moved to EA's Visceral Games to work as a Senior Concept Artist on several unannounced titles.

I eventually returned to Industrial Light & Magic as a Senior Concept Artist where I would work on "Super 8", "Cowboys & Aliens" and "Redtails".

I also served as an Art Lead at Kabam providing Art Direction for a team that ranged from 9-15 people including international outsourcers.

I am currently looking for work as an Art Director or Sr Illustrator.
