My name is Johnny Malcolm, I currently work as a Material/Shader artist here in Vancouver at Next Level games. Prior to that I worked on Disney’s Toys-to-life brand; Marvel Infinity, and on an unannounced project as an Environment artist at United Front Games. I’ve worked in almost every discipline in a video game production art wise excluding lighting. So far I’ve been unable to find anything in Video Games that I don’t enjoy working on. My goal as an Instructor is to put a emphasis on teaching the “whys” and not just the “whats”. I feel most successful when a student learns not just the best practices but understands why it is that they should be implemented.
