Sometimes a tweet will never convey all that one hope to say. New York is kind of starting to grow on me. It is good here! My little apartment (and aren't they all?) is now almost a home. I have a pan, some food in the fridge, a few gadgets, a new bed, the table, the chair. It's not the Kafka apartment anymore, this is better. Naturally like all things in life after a full reboot and rebuild of my life it is going to take some time to get the rest of the pieces back together. Slowly but surely things are coming back together.

In all things I am feeling a lot better. I have been through a lot; traveled, experienced, loved, lost and lived to tell the tale. I feel like I can finally really connect with people both without losing myself or purpose, but without a lack of empathy. It's not an easy lesson to learn, aparently it takes about 31 years give or take.

On a less naval gazing note I have been working on stuff for Gameloft, I have a solemn responsibility to beat a game called N.O.V.A. to a pulp in the graphics department. It's not easy per se, but I do think it's doable! Been listening to a lot of proto electronic stuff and disco. I have put a name and a face to some of my all time favorite music. It was Giorgio Moroder all along! He is just such a crazy looking dude I had to paint a quicky caricature of him:

and here are some YouTube's:

Okay, now if this doesn't make you happy... you are just a dick. Sorry. Anyways, time for BARCADE! Hope everyone has a great weekend.


Back Once Again

It's 2010! I am living in Manhattan! I am working at Gameloft!

Once again the dice randomizer has rolled it's D20's of fate and there have been a lot changes. I want to thank all of my Bharati's for an amazing year and half in India. I really do care a lot about you guys and don't forget about me. Of course, I did have a while to spend some more time with my Utah buddies, I hope you all know we are friends for life, but ideally that's obvious.

I have switched jobs and am working at Gameloft New York. Hopefully in an undisclosed amount of time you will all get to see the fruits of my labors. I can't give any real details but I think this coolest project I have worked on in my career. The guys on my team are great, and I am really liking working in New York, despite the New York State and City tax, which is MURDEROUS. The people here so far are great, my co-workers are awesome and there are some pretty amazing New Yorkers if you know where to look. It's not too surprising what with Bell Curves and all.

On the gaming front I am a wholly owned entity of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. It's truly amazing, been really loving my PSP for that few month's and this might be the high point even over Patapon and Loco Roco.

I have a pretty crazy year ahead of me know, but I have a lot of optimism about what a year can do. As promised to Naresh here are some sketches:
