Personal Quote: In life what we regret most is the chances we never took rather than the mistakes we made

It's a new year so I feel I should update this journal since I seem to constantly forget!

I had a very mad 2011 to say the least, very up and down but the ups managed to make the downs worth it.

The main up of last year was getting my first job in the games industry. I work at Traveller's Tales (we are reasonable for all those addiction causing LEGO games) as a Character Artist. I have to say it's been the most amazing experience of my life. Making me far more self confident and able to believe in my ability as an artist, which if you ask me, is the hardest part of being an artist. Yes, it's hard work. Some times things get rushed through that you're not completely happy with. But nothing beats the feeling of reading reviews from players who loved having the experience you helped create and see people picking your game off the shelf in your local store.

It also helps that they are easily the most happy-go-lucky and accepting people I have ever met. Always wanting to try new things and are constantly excited.

In any case, my first game is already out, LEGO Harry Potter - Years 5-7. Which has done really well despite coming out during the slew of amazing games in the last quarter. And am now working on the newly announced LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. Can't give any details about it of course but I'm super excited about it ^_^ and hope everyone else is too.

In a final note. My lovely boyfriend :iconrobjenx: (Lead Concept Artist at Traveller's Tales) is under taking a rather challenging task of 2012 paintings in 2012. So please head over and give him some support.
