What's cooler than being cool? by daveisblue What's cooler than being cool? by daveisblue
Here is a promo piece I did for an old company I worked for back in Colorado.
If an artist does something like this seven years ago, you would think that he or she
will do a lot more of these but better. Nope! This was the last project I got to work on
that allowed this kind of art direction. I have been creating games such as Beat The Boss and Tap Titans. 
Oh and there was this whole children's book phase..God knows how much I failed in that department. 
So all in all I learned a lot, I got to get rid of some of the career thoughts out of the way, and discovered
what I wanted to do with my passion for arts.

So here is the plan. I am the lead artist at Game Hive and it is going to stay that way as long as the company
doesn't go bankrupt. (It is one of the most successful mobile game studios in Canada so I doubt that's going to
be the case.) If I am to leave Game Hive, it simply means I'm leaving the game industry for good.
My next goal is to become a fine artist. It really means just going back to where I came from.
Canvas and I, we are still quite friendly. I can't wait for my first gallery show. I created a studio called
Orchid Cricket but that's for another story.

Currently I am working on YEAR OF THE LADYBUG 
It all depends on what happens to the project but in a long run I think it is safe to say that I am getting out of
concept art for good. Honestly, I've never been a big fan of computer. They hurt my eyes:(

Thanks!! I never applied to Blizzard for some reason. Guess I was too intimidated by it? Well, everything turned out great and this is my 8th year in the game industry!:)

I've worked on Lego Universe and some other Marvel and Nickelodeon related projects. Those projects didn't do well as products but I got to work with some big names from all companies so I've earned what I deserved I would say:) Recently, mobile app called Beat the Boss and Battle Run are what I'm more proud of!
