Insomniac artists win three Into the Pixel awards
Every year the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences (AIAS) and the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) honor video game artists by selecting concept art pieces for their Into the Pixel Collection. These pieces then form a gallery that travels throughout the year, with the first stop being E3 2014 in Los Angeles.
This year, 19 pieces were selected by the jury and three of them are from Insomniac artists! Two of the selections come from Sunset Overdrive: Souvenir Shop by Vasili Zorin and Character Grouping by Julien Renoult. Sunset Overdrive holds the distinction as the only game to place two pieces of art into this year’s collection.
Ratchet & Clank was also honored, marking the third time Insomniac Games Principal Artist Dave Guertin has had a piece selected by Into the Pixel. This year’s selection was Dave’s Planet Yerek Color Script from Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus.
Our winners are below. But you should check out the Into the Pixel website to see all of the winners from 2014.
