We got to interview the Panda King Himself! Sam "Samwise" Didier a Art Director at Blizzard Entertainment. Among the veteran Blizzard employees, Samwise Didier has been a consistent artist for many years, and recently his style has been the artistic direction of choice for all Blizzard franchises.
Didier's greatly exaggerated physiques and vibrant, bright color palette has dictated the artistic style of Warcraft III, World of Warcraft, and even now doing artwork for Heroes of The Storm. Didier has also designed and drawn many of the graphical icons found in Warcraft III and World of Warcraft, and even provided some voice work for both.
Samwise is the frontman of Elite Tauren Chieftain, the band of Blizzard employees that played at BlizzCon and every hour at Darkmoon Faire.
