Jesse Lofton

About

Jesse Lofton has been drawing from the moment he could pick up a crayon, according to his parents. His love for creation along with his deep imagination led to many drawings and paintings on dozens of walls, in hundreds of sketchbooks and homework assignments, to thousands of gigabytes of storage. His love of art led him to attend San Jose State University's Animation/Illustration program in the spring of 2007. While initially wanting to be an animator, he soon found a love, and eventually graduated with a focus in visual development and 3D conceptual art.

Since graduation, Jesse has worked in San Francisco as a 3D generalist. He has worked in the comic book industry, motion graphics and advertising, even doing work for events such as the Game Developers Conference and the Super Bowl. His true passion emerges in his love for video games, with his first shipped title "The Two Eyes in Team".
