Bio[edit | edit source]

Anthony writes on his blog:

Born and raised in San Francisco. I'm a Senior Artist currently working at Blizzard Entertainment. I've been working in the games biz since the mid-nineties. All artwork posted on this site is the copyright of Anthony S Rivero unless otherwise stated.

The first game company Anthony worked for as an artist was Gravity Incorporated (in the mid-nineties). The company was working on a real time 3D game called Banzai Bug. After getting tired of work on real time 3D games, he eventually ended up applying for a position at Blizzard Entertainment due to an advertisement he had seen in Game Developer [Magazine]. Matt Householder (who was producer on Diablo II at the time) called Anthony, interviewed, and hired him. [1]
