Life Update

2016-10-04 20:43:39 by AlvinHew

Hi everyone!  These days, it's not often that I get around to posting new art.  Having a full time job as well as a young daughter leaves very little free time to pursue my own art.

Nevertheless, after a long hiatus, I finally have something new to show.  Also, I figured it's time to give you all a bit of a life update.

As most of you know, I've been working full time as a game artist at a company called Prodigy.  Some of you also know that I had an opportunity to become the Lead Artist at the company.  However, I decided to turn down the lead position.  The reason for my decision is due to the fact that much of the role involves managing artists and performing administrative tasks rather than actually creating artwork.  Creating art is my passion, and I have no desire to transition into a role that involves doing less of it.

Recently, I was contacted by an old client of mine asking if I could create an illustration for them.  Due to my busy schedule, I usually turn down commission work, but this particular project was interesting enough to me that I decided to sacrifice some sleep (and sanity) to take it on.  I've uploaded the illustration here, so take a gander if you please.

Anyways, hope everyone is doing well.


Reason for my recent inactivity

2015-10-31 15:10:34 by AlvinHew

Hi everyone!  Not sure who still checks out my page here on Newgrounds, but I thought I'd let anyone who still does know what's happening with me these days.

Earlier this year, I was hired at a game company that makes an educational online math game for kids called Prodigy.  Since then, I've been super busy and haven't had much time for personal art.  On top of that, the company is now slowly transitioning me into a lead position, which means I'll soon be even more busy than before.

I really want to get to a point where I can carve out at least a couple hours every day for personal art because I miss posting on wonderful art communities like this.  But at least in the short term, I'm going to be remaining inactive.

Sorry about that.  I hope you're all doing well.



Hi everyone, long time no update! Here's something I created for the company I'm currently working with.

This is an intro cut scene for the educational online math game, Prodigy. I was responsible for creating the illustrations and overlay images.

My New Job

2015-03-04 06:05:17 by AlvinHew

Hi everyone,

I want to apologize for my recent inactivity.  I'm currently working as a game artist at a studio here in Ontario.  It's a great job, but very time consuming, so I'm not left with much spare time at the end of the day.  I do want to try and post things at least once in awhile, but we'll see how things go.

As always, a huge THANK YOU to everyone that's supported me thus far.  You guys rock!


I'm Back!

Hello again, Newgrounds!

It's been awhile, but I'm finally ready to come back to this site.  How's everyone doing?

I will not be posting any updates in the foreseeable future. I've decided to keep my work to myself for now. Thank you to everyone for your support over the years.



I'm really loving the new layout. Might take me a bit longer to really get used to it, but I think the presentation is much, much better now.

Great job to the Newgrounds design team!
