AWESOMENESS!

Hello everyone! for those who don't know, about 4 weeks ago started at Insomniac Games as an Associate Concept Artist. This is basically a junior level concept artist position. It has so far been totally amazing. I know I really lucked out, though it was the result of lots of sacrifice, moving to LA, taking several months of classes, and no clear outcome in site. Fortunately, it more then paid off. I am very happen where I am, and have some amazing talent around me to learn from. Jackpot. Really though it is very fun, they have you hit the ground running, and its been both exciting and relatively manageable. I now get paid to draw all day, specifically scifi oriented stuff. Dream job achieved!

You can do anything you want, if you are ready to find out what you need to know, and what you need to do, and then go do those things.


And Now here's some sketches I've been doodling, I mostly do them for fun now:






Also Happy new year everyone! have fun!!

You said it right:

"You can do anything you want, if you are ready to find out what you need to know, and what you need to do, and then go do those things."
