Nicolas Bouvier is a French illustrator and concept designer working for Microsoft in Seattle, Washington, where he most recently was art director for Halo 5. He's been working in the videogames industry since 1996, working in Halo 4, Assassin's Creed, RAGE, Prince of Persia, Alone in the Dark 4, and about 80 book covers.
