Goodbye for now console gaming. After a good number of years working on console and PC orientated games products I have changed my day-to-day creative arena somewhat and am now working on projects much more aligned to social games and smaller cycle projects. I must admit it is like a breath of fresh air - reminding me very much of the early days of the industry.
What I have found in the last 10 years or so within AAA games development is the stakes have become much higher, the costs have become far greater but the creativity in many cases has been squashed by the need to meet financial criteria rather that a visionary goal.
While I am still finding it hard to find the time to paint much personal work - I am delighted that more recently I am painting and being creative all of the time - working up new ideas and visual styles with vigor and within a group of other like-minded people. Long may this feeling continue!
I hope all is well with you out there.
