Still interning at the super awesome games company, Mediatonic, I’ll be interning here till I go back to uni in October. It’s amazing here, everyone is incredibly friendly and passionate in what they do. They have a gaming room with all the consoles where you can game throughout your lunch break (Or during games night) and a lovely communal kitchen, where everyone eats together.
My duties are to draw alllll day, a wish come true! I had no idea there’s actually a job where you can just draw all day! Here’s a photo of my desk… wanted to decorate it more, but I know my time here is temporary and it’ll be too sad when I’ll have to pack my belongings… everyone’s desks are full of quirky game figures and vinyl toys!
As Mediatonic moved into a new office in Soho recently, we celebrated like crazy and had a mad office warming party… full of rock band, football (England was playing) and lots of alcohol… these are cupcakes featuring some of the Mediatonic characters!
Below is a photo of the reception which is still under construction… a small collection of all the wonderful toys in the office… Which I will dearly miss when I leave… T__T;;
I’m currently drawing items to sell on an international, successful children’s game based of a television channel. Unfortunately, I can’t give too many details about the project I’m working on or show any pictures. My Illustrator skills have increased immensely and I’m curious to see how it’ll impact my own work and style. Below is an example of my simple illustrator style before Mediatonic…
I hope during my time here that I’ll speed up, I feel like I’m churning out work quite slowly… The downside is, since I’m drawing all day for work, when I come home, drawing is the last thing on my mind… so I haven’t produced anything for myself lately. I haven’t blogged on my personal blog in a while too…
I took some time off to go to Hong Kong. The trip was refreshing and enlightening, I learnt a lot about the culture and the lifestyle there. The purpose of visiting Hong Kong was to gather research material for one of my final major projects, which is going to be ambitious… (.__. ;; ) Below is one of my favourite places in Hong Kong, a protected garden near a temple.
