I was planning on making this post early Jan! oh dear.
2012 was an eventful year for me on my creative achievements:
- Started working at Mind Candy
- Two iOS games I worked on were released. "Alien Masher" and "Buddha Finger"
- Artwork in the "Journey" artbook
- Adobe Illustrator semi mastered ( with the help of some amazing friends at work)
On top of that I met a whole bunch of crazily talented people, the majority of them I have the pleasure of working with. The year of the dragon has been the most amazing so far!
So many things to learn and there's never enough time, wishing you all the best in your creative developments for the new year! Bring it 2013!
I got to design a fancy Christmas card at work. The theme was Jelly Beans and Shoreditch. And Moshlings of course! Big Bad Bill is one of my favourites. Finally got to paint with my tablet after so long!
Merry Christmas everyone! Wishing you all the best, happy times with your loved ones.
I love Game Jams, it's great fun and sometimes something special can come out of it. Heres an example of one I was asked to polish up. Done around last year while I was at Mediatonic :) Great memories.

1) My fan art is in "The art of Journey" artbook. So very excited to receive my copy. Journey has been one of the most beautiful and thought provoking games I've played in these last few years. Its an honour to be a small part of it.
2) An iOS game I helped work on is now released. I have been freelancing with the amazing people at Lady Shotgun on Buddha Finger. I worked on the story images with the existing art style from the main artist. It's similar to "Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan!" with a crazy story twist! Do give it a go and let me know with you think. tap tap tap!
3) I attended the Schoolism workshop in London. Alex Woo's gesture drawing workshop was a complete eye opener for me. It's given me a lot to take back and think about when I'm drawing. It threw a lot of things I thought I knew about drawing/ sketching out the window. Would recommend it if you ever get the chance. It was also a great opportunity to meet other creatives in the industry!
4) Bobby Chiu and Kei Acedera from Imaginism Studios came by Mind Candy to give a talk and demo. Thanks so much to Nana for arranging it! Did I mention I work next to Nana now? It's pretty sweet! I spy on her a lot.
Nothing new to post as I've been busy at my job and doing freelance work outside of it. I'm loving every moment of it though! Heres an image I did for my portfolio a while back. It's a rushed idea but not sure if I will develop it right now.
