About Nick Sherman

Hi, I'm Nick Sherman.

As the Lead Artist at Gamesville, a casual gaming portal based in the Boston-area, I've created the art, animation, and design for a handful of casual Flash games on Gamesville.com and Facebook from bingo and keno to card and puzzle games. I also illustrated the zombies in the iOS app Weather Zombie, co-designed the latest Gamesville.com redesign and worked on many other creatives for Gamesville and Lycos. Prior to Gamesville I interned at FableVision Studios where I was then contracted to create 3 add-on packs for their award-winning children’s software Stationery Studio.
