The Art of Games Italy



Here's one pic from a recent group show I was a part of In Valle D Aosta Italy, which is about a 2 hour drive west of Milan. Close to the border of France. From Left to right: Mattias Hogvall, Barontieri, Nick Oroc, Jason Felix, the guy who printed our stuff whose name I cant remember, Jim Murray, Daniel Dociu, Politician guy, Me, Allesandro Tiani, Valentina Marchetti and some other guys involved in various capacities. This was an amazing experience and I feel extremely thankful to have been a part of it. I was lucky to have the opportunity to meet and exhibit my art next to some of the most talented people in the games industry today. There are definitely more amazing talents out there that I'm sure we'll see more of in the future as video game and film development work gets more recognition in the rest of the world.
I am so thankful to have met these other guys, their work is amazing and they're great people which makes me like thier work more. I was looking forward to meeting some more of the artists involved Like Craig Mullins, Stephan Martiniere, Kekai Kotaki among others, but unfortunately only 7 of the 13 were able to make it out at the same time.

Thanks to everyone who made this possible!

I'm going to post some pics on flikr soon, just need to find time to set up an account and stuff.

Thanks Hans! The show was great and I loved Italy!
Miles, that's crazy cause I didn't know that I was in that issue either! I was flipping through it at the book store and saw the page. It's cool of them to promote me but they mis-credited a piece and used the wrong image.

Thanks for the comments guys!
