A talk with Jason Piel

IGN Xbox had the opportunity to talk with one of the coolest kats around. That hip kat is Jason Piel, who happens to be the Lead Designer and Art Director, for Sierra’s newest beatnik spy Jonny Drama! (Can you dig it man?) Here is a clip of the interview, daddy-o!

IGN Xbox: The visual style of JD is certainly distinct in the gaming world. I take it you guys wanted to capture some of the cartoon feel from some of your more obvious influences. Could you tell us a bit about where you’re drawing from to put together this title?

JP: As we started to figure out 3-D graphics, and learn exactly what was possible, there’s an obvious struggle artistically between the abstraction of the limitations and the realism that everybody wants...you know, that quest for polygons. And since cartoons don’t really have to rely on painted muscles, bump-mapping and that kind of stuff, I decided to explore the possibilities of a more honest an abstract approach, kind of like ’we know our limits, let’s leave it at that,’ and evolve a style that fits that well ’instead of settling for something, you just sort of make the most of what it is.

Snap here to read the rest of the interview!
