Life Update

Posted by AlvinHew - October 4th, 2016


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.

I love that you turned down that job position, your a true inspiration! Your art is amazing and I cant wait to see whats next

Hey man, thanks for the kind words! Oh, and sorry for the late response.

I'm slowly trying to progress my skills further during the little bits of free time I do have. Hopefully one day I'll have the time I need to be active online again.

So do you work for the company that does Prodigy the Math game?

Yep, that's the one!

I wish all the best for you and your future.
