Sorry I've not talked to you for a while. I never seem to return your calls or anything, do I? Well, I've decided to get back into DeviantArt and start uploading more bits of artwork. Last year I indulged in a thing on Twitter called 366agogo. Was it the year before? I forget. Anyway, every day I sketched something cool and used Twitter to show it off to everyone. I think it was an exercise in getting my artistic mojo back.
Ever since I co-founded the mighty Atomhawk Design with some ex-workmates from the now defunct Midway Newcastle, I've been involved in a lot of cool things. I designed front ends and animated some cool stuff for a variety of videogames including Watch_Dogs, Mortal Kombat, Injustice, Enslaved, Devil May Cry, Dead Nation, Pottermore, Kinect Sports Season 2, Resogun and other things besides. I designed the UI for the new Costa Coffee machine which will soon be invading everywhere. You won't escape. That was a cool gig though - I got to work with some Top Men like the co-founder of Shazam and the chaps from PininFarina who indulge in Ferrari design.
Now there's a turning point. Time to move on. Returning to my DeviantArt page is a trumpet call to my soul. You know if someone says that you're not a very good artist then eventually you'll believe them and become a not very good artist? Think that record needs to be taken off the turntable and smashed with a hammer. Screw that noise.
First bunch of artwork which will hit DA will be the remaining 346 pieces of artwork created for 366agogo. Yep, 346! After that, I'll be sketching stuff again. I want to get back into the swing of being an artist again.
Thanks for the love you guys give through commenting, faving and the like. It's a nice thing. I'll try not to disappoint.
