  • I have had the privilege to work with Jannis for over a year now and cannot list how much positive feedback we gathered from ecstatic students after each class. Jannis has shown true leadership amongst our faculty, combining sophisticated art skills and authentic soft skills.

  • Jannis [is] friendly, open, engaged, and proactive. He always looked to provide the best work possible using his considerable skillset, knowledge, and experience, and made a major contribution to the project he was working on [at Axis Studios].

  • Jannis is a unicorn in that he is both exceptionally creative and also exceptionally skilled; his ability to think outside the box and apply that creative love of world-building to his work really shines through. While many concept artists can produce functional production art, Jannis produces beautiful and detailed pieces in the same timescale. I can't recommend him enough and believe he's an asset to anything he works on, deeply skilled, ultra-creative, supremely committed, and very responsible. 10/10.
