Published Works In Print
I wrote two articles for Gamasutra / GameCareersGuide.
The first one was on art directing for video games, and it delves into the nitty gritty of what an art director actually does from day-to-day, the different types of art directors (some are more like managers, and some are very hands on in the art production), and what qualities a good art director should have.
The second article was on top tip for game artists who are working professionally in the industry. You can read it by clicking on the thumbnail image below:
