Skyrim AIAA Award dedicated to late concept artist Adam Adamowicz
Bethesda's Todd Howard has dedicated the latest award that Skyrim has won to the concept artist Adam Adamowicz who recently passed away from cancer when he picked up the Game of the Year award at this year's Annual Interactive Achievement Award.
Pete Hines announced the sad news on Twitter last week that Adamowicz had passed away after a long struggle with cancer. Bethesda's blog is currently hosting a tribute page to the concept artist showcasing the very best elements of his work.
Adamowicz worked extensively on concept artwork for Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Skyrim and was instrumental in shaping these worlds into the wonderful environments we have had the pleasure of exploring over the years.
A tribute to Adam Adamowicz on AwesomeRobo described him as, "A veritable one-man conceptual machine, who, unlike his contemporary counterparts, did a majority of his work in non digital mediums. Fallout 3 was pretty much visually designed from the ground up by one humble man who got little to no recognition, nor sought it."
The success of Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Skyrim stands as a monument to the creative talents of Adam Adamowicz and the games industry is diminished by his passing.
