Global Game Jam: The Aftermath
After a very hectic, very awesome weekend, Global Game Jam is finally over. In case anyone is not aware, Global Game Jam is an industry crunch-time simulation, in which teams are challenged to create a full video game in 48 hours. Despite being a freshman and having doubts about my usefulness on a team, I was very excited about this event from the start. Every person I talked to said that...
Global Game Jam
Right now I’m sitting in Montgomery Hall, almost 17 hours into Global Game Jam. Global Game Jam is an industry crunch-time simulation, in which you and a team create a fully functioning video game in 48 hours. Being a freshman, I don’t have very much to offer as far as skillsets…I’m good with Illustrator and Photoshop, but I’ve never touched Maya or UDK (the...
Stormtrooper 365 →
On a completely unrelated note, this guy is awesome. This photographer took a picture of a couple of Stormtrooper action figures every day for a whole year, and posted them all to Flickr. The above link is to his gallery. Check it out if you like Star Wars, or just something cute and fun to browse through.

Found this online…very awesome, and very creative! :D
I’ve linked to my deviantArt page on the side, but I thought I’d mention here that I’m uploading some classwork & projects (as well as other work) to dA so people can see what kinds of things I’m doing here at SCAD. If you’re a prospective student or just curious about what goes on at art school, I welcome you to check it out. Comments/Critiques from fellow...
This weekend I had a chance to play with the Kinect for Xbox, and you know what? It’s pretty awesome. I went over to a friend’s dorm for dinner on Sunday and afterwards his roommate talked to his Xbox and turned it on. This was the first time I saw a Kinect in action. We had a lot of fun playing that Kinect Adventures game. There’s some obstacle course adventure that has you...
Today, I switched out of a class. One thing I love about college is that you have to option to do this. My 3D design professor, although I’m sure he’s a good man, is basically Mr. Carpenter. The way he described the class was ideal for an architecture major. I am a video game design major. I believe if I had stayed with him, I would not be learning the principles of 3D design in a...
Spiders In The Wallet
Art school is a black hole of money. Wonderful as it is, it sucks up funds like nothing else. Sure, textbooks are expensive, just like they are for any college student. But here, it’s all about the supplies. If you don’t have the proper supplies for the project, you fail. It’s as simple as that. Tomorrow, I have to go out to home depot and get a carpenter’s tri-square, a...
Home Is Where The Heart Is
I’m finally back at school! It’s so nice to see everyone…I missed it here so much. Maybe this is just me, but I feel like college is more like my home now than my real home is. All of my friends are here, I go to school here, my bed is more comfortable, I have much more fun here, and even the food is arguably better than the frozen dinners I’d have every night in high...
