[ Person -> Interview ] - More info on Community: Inside the Vault | More info on Person: Joe Sanabria | More info on Game: Fallout: New Vegas

This week's Inside the Vault is with Obsidian and Fallout: New Vegas Senior Artist Joe Sanabria. Here are the highlights:

What’s your job at Obsidian?

I’m a Senior Artist here at the studio, which is what they call you when you get gray hairs and have been doing this for a few years.

My job in a nutshell is to make Fallout: New Vegas look good. I focus on the visual development of the game and define the artistic direction.

...

Any fun facts you’d like to share about Obsidian?

At around 4pm they unlock the doors and a few Obsidianites will wander around the Irvine Spectrum, which is an outdoor shopping center across the street, for about 20 minutes and then return to their desks.

...

You were an artist in NYC and now you work in the OC. How do the scenes compare?

Well, technically it’s upstate NY and not the city where I grew up. But I was no stranger to the streets of Manhattan, in particular Washington Heights.

But getting to the question, I don’t think it’s a fair comparison. There are so many museums and galleries in Manhattan, I think that just the work in the Met alone is probably larger than all the museums and galleries of OC combined.

Check out the whole interview here.

Joe Sanabria worked on Neverhood and Skullmonkeys. He's got a +1 in my book.

Actually, the visual stills were one of the few excellent things about Fallout 3 - not necessarily canon, but they were still excellent.

It was on the playstation and was a platformer over the point'n'click game that was Neverhood. Still really fun though.
