I don'r really draw anymore.
I'll probably never post anything here again.
I'm doing good, I'm working in the game industry now, life is still weird.
Thanks for all the love over all these years.
Love you guys, take care!
My mixed media work never really took off, I struggled with income for over 12 years trying to "make it".
Most of the time I struggled making any kind of income.
I was blinded by my focus on making better and better art to realize I was... miserable, broke and not getting anywhere.
Until a lady talked to me during my Solo exhibition, and told I should make games, go to japan, do something else but with my same world building.
It just sort of started something in my head. an urge I've forgotten I had.
I've always been told that creative people, people with dyslexia especially, could never do programming, and because of that, not make games.
So after failing again and again to learn as a teen, I had given up on that dream.
But, just a few weeks after the exhibition, I learnt through a friend of a friend of a friend about this game development school were all you do is create, no theoretical learning, just making.
So I applied, even though I failed math and had shit grades as a teen, I some how got accepted.
I freaking loved it there. Don't get me wrong, it was hard as hell, I would spend all night studying until it just kind of clicked.
Aaand I was making everything -but music- that I needed in games, even programming.
I made a silly that went viral, like Jacksepticeye and pewdiepie letsplay viral... it was a ride, that's for sure.
And later when Tarsier Studios saw my WIP physics driven inlines game, I got an internship at their studio.
20 weeks later, test employed - not sure if that's translating it correctly - aaand now I'm a fully employed game developer.
I'm still being creative, just... not drawing.
I try to draw every now and again, but it just doesn't give me anything anymore.
So I doodle, but not really anything serious.
I'm happy though, like, for real. Work is hard but we have a lot of fun.
I can't say anything about what I do at work, NDA contracts and all that fun stuff.
But I do work on silly games on my free time, so if you're interested in where I am now, I do post about it on the social media links below.
Before I bounce, for.. another few years?
Thank you all.
Really, I've met so many nice people here, a few I can call great friends.
I really wish you all the best, I hope you end up living nice and at least at most of the time, happy lives.
Take your vitamin D pills, we all know none of us leave the house enough to get that the natural way.
