...or maybe it's perfect timing for Thanksgiving. Either way, I am happy to announce that I just accepted an offer from Glu Mobile to work as a contract weapons artist on Deer Hunter 2014. Had an interview and an art test last week and I guess I passed. Glu made the offer official today. So, for the next six months, I will be crafting firearms for this fun game (Free-to-Play on iOS and Android). I really couldn't be more thrilled to be part of this team. With my Arkansas upbringing and six years making guns for the The Agency, I was born to make art for this game. Even better, some fellow SOE-Seattle alumni are at Glu, so I get another chance to work with some old friends.
This ends, for a little while at least, a lengthy dry spell between jobs. I was beginning to think my game-dev days were over. Then this popped up as if out of nowhere. I guess it's true you never know when something good is around the corner. Thanks to everyone for being so encouraging during some dark days. I really value the advice, friendship and help everyone has given me over the years. Hope everyone here searching for and needing a job lands a good gig soon!
