Summary


Hi, my name is Simon Wong. I’m a concept artist at Alex Rose Games; producing work in 2D animation, character design, in-game level assets, promotional art and website graphics.

My formative years were spent watching films and shows like the original Transformers, Godzilla, Voltron, Jason and the Argonauts, among many others. The characters and special effects were spectacular to my youngmind; inspiring me to pursue art and recreate what I saw onscreen. This initial admiration would later evolve into a passion for character/ creature design for videogames and movies.

Currently, I also offer my services for freelance illustration and concept art. Feel free to get in touch should you wish to discuss any projects or needs you may have.
