Mark Brenneman

Art Director by day. Master teller-of-dad-jokes by night.

I'm a multi-disciplined artist with a passion for helping other artists and designers reach their full potential.

I began my career as a games artist in 1987 when there were only 16 colors available in EGA!

I worked as a general artist for 6 years, eventually becoming the Art Director for the popular Front Page Sports and Starsiege Tribes series.

In addition to my game-related art experience, I possess a Master's Degree in Architecture and utilize those skills in my current projects.

He replies, "I think not."

*POOF!* He vanishes!
