“My experiences with Cheryl have been nothing but the best. She is very detail orientated, she’ll ask good questions if anything is unclear and finds solutions to any problems that arise during development of any illustration project. On top of that she is always positive with a “can do” attitude.” .                                                                                                               .

Senior Art Manager, Blizzard Entertainment Inc.

“I worked with Cheryl as a producer when we hired the Concept Art House for concept work on Command & Conquer 4. Cheryl was very organized and helped keep the fast pace of the weekly goals of 4 – 5 fully realized concept art pieces on track each week. We maintained this pace for about 3 months. She was punctual, very personable, and extremely reliable. I look forward to working with her again.”

David Kury
Art Development Director / Animator, Electronic Arts Inc.

“During my time as the Art Director at Upper Deck Entertainment, I had the opportunity to work with Cheryl on a regular basis. She was always very reliable and personable to work with, and once a conversation was had or a point discussed, you knew she would follow through.Cheryl maintained a strong line of communication at all times and was very adaptable throughout the course of a project.

Typically as an Art Director I prefer to speak directly to the artists I work with, but in the case of an Art House this is not always possible. Cheryl’s clear and concise communication style made this into more of a team effort than the barrier it could be under different circumstances. I never questioned or worried about the outcome.

I would recommend Cheryl for any position where communication, reliability, follow through, and a great personality are important.”

“We’ve hired Concept Art House for several outsourcing jobs throughout the last year for our Xbox 360 game. Throughout it all, Cheryl has been our main contact — I’ve found her to be extremely responsive, quick to turnaround feedback, and proactive with quality control. And on top of that she’s a pleasure to work with — always personable and friendly, even when deadlines are looming.”

Partner Recommendations

“Cheryl is a cheerful and dynamic force to have on any team. In the time I worked with her I never once heard anything negative. She was up late, picking up tasks as required, occasionally pitching in to complete art and moving the projects forward with a positive and energetic attitude. I hope to have the opportunity to work with her again.”

Coworker Recommendations

“Cheryl managed many of the projects I was on when we worked together at Present Creative. She was not only excellent at keeping everything and everyone on track, but was extremely well-informed on the details of all her projects and always readily available to answer any and all questions regarding them. If she didn’t have the full answer, she would promptly find whoever did. In a studio where I jump between multiple projects almost every day, this attention to detail and clarity was the most helpful thing she could have done, and she did it fantastically.

Cheryl was a joy to work with and I’ll miss her terribly.”

Hadidjah Chamberlin
3D / Technical Artist, Present Creative LLC.

“Cheryl was always a very well organized producer, as well as a genuine pleasure to work with. She always worked to keep us organized and on track, while regularly considering new ways of streamlining the paperwork and organization processes. She also always went above and beyond to make sure that artists had all information and tools needed to successfully do our jobs. I would highly recommend her.” ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Angela Vanden Tak
Game Asset Artist, Present Creative LLC.

“Cheryl was one of my producers at Present Creative, and besides being great to work with, she was able to efficiently manage and organize projects for in-house artists and a large number of outside contractors. She is good at paying attention to key aspects and details in each project, and giving artists the assistance they need whenever any pipeline related issues come up. Present Creative was lucky to have Cheryl as a part of their studio, and I would definitely be more than happy to work with her again in the future.”

Aletta Wenas
Concept/2D Artist, Present Creative LLC.

“The time I spent with Cheryl was great. She was always extremely helpful in managing our projects and making sure everything was on track. Also, she always brought candy to the office and was constantly making sure everybody felt alright. If you ask me, that’s a nice way to reach your fellow co-workers in a personal level. I found her very versed in video games and its creation processes. She know what she’s talking about.

This lady has a lot to offer.”

Outsourcer Recommendations

“I have worked with Cheryl for the past year at Present Creative. Together we pushed out a massive amount of assets under incredibly tight deadlines. It is her clarity of instruction and her ability to stay on top of changes that has saved me time and time is money in the freelance world. Cheryl’s clear accurate description of the tasks at hand, her quick reply to questions, and her ability to articulate criticism without offending my artistic sensibilities is a gift that cannot be taught. It has been a pleasure working with Cheryl and I hope to work with her again in the near future. I would highly recommend Cheryl to anyone who needs a Champion Producer.”

Anthony Ashton
Concept Artist, Electronic Arts Inc.

“Cheryl Johnson was a very good Art director. On the projects I illustrated for, she gave constructive critiques, and through our collaboration, the final art was always better because of her input. In my experience, the worst art directors just let me do what I think is good enough. Cheryl pushed me to do the best piece of art for the project.”

Colin Adams
