Jesper Kyd's Voice

I'm taking a quick time-out from PAX to share an experience I had at a panel.

Today I got to hear and meet, Jesper (pronounced "Yesper") Kyd, the man behind the Darksiders II soundtrack and many others. His biggest message to aspiring composers (which I think applies directly to concept art) was "Have a voice. Don't just try to copy what's popular. Keep doing what you think is cool, and really focus on that." Amen, brother. Amen.

That's excellent advice.In the past I've been very guilty of not trusting myself enough to focus on what I love,but instead trying to be what I thought everyone expected me to be. Hope you're having a great time at PAX Mr. Richards.
