My name is Peter Gandia. I am a Senior Concept Artist in the game industry. Great companies and amazing people have grown me into a well rounded artist. My thirst to constantly develop my skill and work with other artists keeps me motivated.

Recently, I managed six employees as "Lead Artist" at SEGA Networks Inc. Smoothing out all of the aspects of the Art Department and it's asset pipeline was a most rewarding task. I am grateful for my time there, the knowledge I acquired and a chance to work with my fantastic art team. 
A few of my responsibilities were:

-collaborated with the engineering team to smooth out the pipeline for art asset creation
-delegated tasks to the art team
-create, run, and shepherd a "Mid Week Art Meet" at the beginning and end of our 2 week sprints for task clarity, group feedback, 
inspiration and sense of community
-give feedback through critique or paint over
-create and maintain an "Art Bible" for the look and mood of the project
-documentation of software, processes and best practices
-sometimes, I got to draw... I liked that
