Holy Tacos, I won something! - July 3rd, 2008

A few weeks ago I entered the NoGD (Notes on Game Development) competition for Aspiring Women Game Artists. I certainly didn’t expect this.

After the initial euphoria wore off…okay, it hasn’t yet…what was I talking about? Photobucket

In all seriousness, I can’t believe the opportunity they’ve given me. I haven’t taken a formal art class since I was eight years old. Now I’ll be getting instruction from professionals with a specific focus on game art. I’m not sure what all this means, but the universe has been sending me a lot of signs lately.

They printed this section of my essay that sums up my goals pretty well:

“I want to challenge the notion of ‘games for women.’ Thus far, attempts to court women gamers have focused on games with domestic, consumerist, and cutesy themes: the gaming equivalent of cotton candy. I feel that this is far too narrow a scope. My goal is to create games that are smart, funny, and memorable, and enjoyable to anyone who likes a challenge.”

Guess it’s time to get to work. Photobucket

I think I might be a leprecaun - August 7th, 2007

Is there a good way to ask your mom if you might be part leprecaun? I think the evidence speaks for itself:

  • Red hair
  • Uncanny choice of wardrobe
  • Inhuman ability to find four-leaf clovers

    “What’s that little clover? You want me to buy a lottery ticket?”

    I found six of those little things yesterday when I was supposed to be studying for the GRE. Does this mean I can stop studying now? Hmm…maybe if this grad school thing doesn’t work out I can go into game design for real. Watch out, Dave Gilbert! Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
