Work photo


The front row is, plus or minus one or two, the Art Department. Moments before the photo was taken I'd instructed them to "give a huge thumbs up with a really retarded expression on your face" - for some reason those poor kids still listen to me.

Oops, my own pose and expression are identical to those in my recent "Are you intimidated by my opulence?" photo. I need a new schtick.

Today I've coined a new term: "Hecticity": hectic activity. My work life has been in a state of hecticity since I got back from Jenolan, but as of this week I've completed my digital paintings for my second game in my time here, and am now tying up the rest of the game, which is mostly a matter of graphic design. So I can breathe again and look forward to beginning my third game. It says something about this workplace that even in a "time of hecticity" we can always spare an hour and a half every Friday for our drawing contest.

As it turns out, Those Downstairs were aware of the contest, and yesterday they rolled with it by setting us an actual, necessary character design task to do on Friday. Despite the fact that our contest has been hijacked (if only for this week), we're all so impressed by the management savvy of this move that all we can do is give Those Downstairs a big thumbs-up, accompanied by the retarded happyfaces of the photo above. This reaction is due, in part, to the fact that they're going to give a prize to the creator of the best design. We love prizes!

Forgive me for not going into project specifics when I talk about work; that's my NDA in action. We have fun, our games are cool, there's not much more I need to say anyway. :)

What studio do you work for, unless that is NDA too? XD
