Community Spotlight: Fan Art by AJ Nazzaro

Community Spotlight

Freelance illustrator AJ Nazzaro has been creating inspired works of art since just after Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos was released. For over 10 years now, AJ has been focusing on perfecting his skills, and he’s spent a great deal of his free time honing his craft on epic Blizzard-inspired pieces. Five years ago, AJ decided to turn his passion for drawing into a career in illustration.

When asked where his true allegiances lie, AJ emphatically stated: “As far as I am concerned, there is nothing cooler than an orc—brutally clad in spiked armor carrying a giant axe.” Even if your loyalties collide, we still think you’ll agree that all of his pieces are pretty awesome. Here are some of his favorites he’s been gracious enough to share with us:

AJ graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Graphic Design, and went on to continue his education in Illustration and Digital Painting at Oatley Academy. He currently resides in Denver, Colorado. You can follow him on Twitter and Facebook. He’d also love it if you stopped by his deviantART page to check out his other work.
