Born in the Philippines, Gem Lim grew up in Manila, playing video games and watching Disney movies and anime. Immersing herself in those fictional worlds made up of inspiring characters, she dreamed of being a part of their creation, eventually coming to ArtCenter to learn how. Now a concept and splash artist at major video gaming company Riot Games, Lim designs stylized characters and creatures for the massive hit "League of Legends." She was previously a concept artist for both Whitemoon Dreams, Inc. and digital entertainment company GlobeX Studios, character designer for Cartoon Network’s "Generator Rex," and a visual development artist at Lego Concept Lab. Lim describes her art journey as a dynamic exploration of “West meets East” as she weaves whole new worlds out of both aesthetics. Lim is based in Los Angeles, where she still loves playing video games and watching movies and anime.
