Oof, last Journal was very, very old.  Since that time, I've...

Done a bangin' cow art test
Left one (comfy) job
Took another one, lost it
Went to GDC (WOW!)
Saw the original cut of Empire Stirkes Back (AT LucasFilm, so cool), biked San Francisco + the Golden Gate Bridge
Visited Santa Monica, which is so great
Saw Bonobo and El Ten Eleven in Austin - techno-saxophone!
Read 4 books, took 6 flights
Got a crazy cool new job at Riot Games, so my husband, cat and I are moving to California!

So it's been busy!  While enjoying a spot of summer vacation, I've been riding my bike lots more, organizing the house obsessively, and also trying to *finish* work - jillions and jillions of things I started and then forgot about for the last few years.  In-between more finished updates, I might (if you want to) suggest (maybe) that you check out my Tumblr, cause I post things there more often these days. :)

Digging through backlogged notes (sorry, I'm getting to you, I promise!) and going to see how much I can get done before we... Go to Washington, D.C., then Austin (again), then Colorado + Utah for road trips, then to California for work + Siggraph (yay!), and then the Caribbean in August (pinch me!).  Go, team, go!

Congrats! That sounds like a lot of fun ohohoho caribbean! and great news. Good luck with the moving, and with the new job :la:

Also, I'm following your Tumblr right away. Lately I use it a lot more than other social/artsite media, imo it's specially good for browsing and keeping track of artists and inspirations even when you haven't got a lot of time. See you there! :heart:

Love Tumblr! As soon as I've got my computer back, mine is in need of more love, but man, it is so addictive. I'll go check yours out now :)

And thank you!

Oh so great!! Congratulations on your new job :D Does it mean you'll be doing arts for League of Legends or something? :)

JessiBeans Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yes! :D SO excited, I'm a Visual Designer on League of Legends.
I also have to play the game lots more, so that definitely doesn't suck.

Do you play?

Oh wow I'm really looking forward to see you designs!! LoL arts are so beautiful I love them all (somehow especially art spotlight of Varus). This really sounds like a dream job :D You're a perfect person on a perfect place :)
Oh yes I used to play it but now I don't have time. Nevertheless I love this game and I remember times when it wasn't so popular :)

Sounds like you've had a busy time and will continue to do so. Life is fun when its full of travel, friends/family, and excitement. Looks like you've been having fun ;)

Also, enjoy Colorado! I welcome you to the state.

Thanks so much! Colorado is, hands down, one of the most amazing places I have ever been. We'll be back there shortly, I am sure! :D

Congratulations on the new job! I didn't know you were a cyclist. How was biking in San Francisco? That's a trip I'd love to do someday.

Thank you! :)
You HAVE to do it, the city is breathtakingly beautiful, and the cycling is world class. Some day I want to try it on my own bike, not a rented one, but you can't beat riding a mountain bike in the same place where the sport was invented. Kinda like learning to surf in California, which is next on the list!

I'm a Visual Designer here at Riot, but I've been a production artist, concept artist, done marketing and even voices since I started working in the game industry :)

Oh wow, so you've done quite a bit of work >.< I'm looking at internships at Crytek UK (seeing as it's based in my city and I'm in college so I can't move around really), did you do any intern stuff? If so was it worth it?
