Mike Winterbauer
Email mjwinterbauer@msn.com for questions.
I am a Art Center College of Design and Pomona College graduate. 

I have thirty years of experience working in the arts. I have worked as an illustrator, designer, concept artist, 3D artist and art director in the past.

I am most notably known for my work in illustration having done a string of classic computer game covers in the 80's and 90's. You may have seen some of the covers I painted which included Might and Magic Clouds of Xeen and Darkside of Xeen and interior maps, Wing Commander, Solstice, WolfChild and Power Blade to name a few.

I enjoy creating new traditional paintings which are tied to my earlier work but I also continue creating new work in digital painting and combining digital painting with traditional painting. Recently, my work received worldwide attention after I self published my book Classic Game Covers about my experiences being an artist. It is an honest and humorous read about being an artist and how I created my art. The book is available for free on my website:
