Pixologic is saddened to learn of the passing of Mike Nash, a single luminary in digital art and game design. Beginning in 2006 as a Character Artist at Pandemic Studios, he later worked at THQ, Playground Games, Guerrilla Games and Nvidia.
Some of the projects he was most proud of were the robot concept work for 2015’s “Chappie,” Lead Key Mechanical Design for 2017’s “Horizon: Zero Dawn” and mechanical concepting for the upcoming “Warriors of Future” film.
He had a distinctive style that blended hard surface and organic work in surprising, yet fully believable ways. He was known for his exceptional attention to details. He was also very well known for his willingness to mentor other artists, such as through his YouTube channel.
