This virtual art museum is a game-changer


Shane Johnson gets some seriously cool gigs. For Five by Five Global and their client, Activision Blizzard Media, he created two illustrations for the award-winning Gallery of the Gamer, an interactive virtual museum that showcases different gamer personas in reimagined versions of famous works of art. For “Balance of Power,” he created the World of Warcraft Orc using comic-inking software and Adobe Illustrator. And for “The Great Stage,” he replaced a kabuki performance with an epic Overwatch battle, with World of Warcraft characters hidden in the audience. Check out the gallery. It’s fascinating and fun—even if you’re a n00b like me!
