I will tell you a few things, I love video games. More importantly than that. I love video game ART.
(I'm actually still not sure if it's more important. I need to get some fact checkers in here on that.)
I've studied game art for a long time now. During my secondary education I considered working in the industry under that field as a career path. While I've determined that might not necessarily be for me, I will do something which I've developed sort of a knack for along the way, talk. I love talking to people, also I love talking to people about stuff. And what is more fun than to write and discuss the STUFF you love most?
So, long story short. I'm an art-nerd-man-thing.
If reading about the art direction for various video games and game industry trends interests you, then you're in the right place!

I gave myself my favorite red hoodie FROM REAL LIFE LIKE I WORE ONE TIME IN REAL LIFE GUYS. And I'm doing a spray paint all over your computer screens all whacky like! And get a load of THIS, that's my face in there because this is a self portrait!
... ahghh hrrmm...
Sorry about that. Anyways.
Figured I'd share a bit o' art work with you chaps and chapettes.
It's based off of my favorite game of all time, Jet set radio future! I used to create drawings like this in the margins of my history notes during highschool all the time. Eventually I learned about 3D modeling and moved away from that sort of thing, but occasionally I get an excuse to let the doodle beast out to roam, so thanks for that!
Hope you all didn't feel TOO inclined to gouge out your eye balls!
Also, sorry if you guys thought the title meant there was going to be poo in this picture somewhere. I was just really inclined to insert an extremely stupid pun somewhere in the name.
