Job acquired! / Gnomon

I'm pleased to announce, as of next week, I'll be at 343 Industries (the Microsoft game developer helming Halo) working with yet another all-star team. Feel so fortunate!

Special, sugar-coated thanks to everyone who reached out to me during my period of unemployment. I was flattered by all the interest, and was able to do a lot of exploring and people-meeting.  I'd say "networking" but that's so California-douchey.

The new job will land me in the Seattle, WA area. As a new, single resident, I'm of course interested in all the good art and music spots. If anyone has any recommendations, or would care to meet up or visit, please contact me at djunderfoot (at) gmail (dot) com. I'd love to hear from you!


I'd also like to thank everyone who attended/coordinated last week's Babe Lab workshop, "Sensitivity Training." The place was packed for a Thursday night (200+) and everything went so well, we'd be insane not to do it again. Stacy was a real trooper, letting me basically use her body as a prop. The things we do for art!

Thanks to Joshua James Shaw for the pic.

Congratulations on the new job.
I've been lurking a bit on your blog for probably waayyy to long.
I don't know you obviously but I'm glad to see that you found a gig with a studio that's moving along at a breakneck pace.
That being said I enjoyed looking at your work in the Darksiders Artbook and of course here every chance I get.
I'm trying to get back in the art game myself. If you feel so inclined drop by my deviantart page. I'm working on new stuff as quickly as I can.
Any crits would be appreciated.

Best of luck.

Do you know where you'll be staying?
Kirkland? Downtown Seattle? Great coffee all around anyway. We'll you join Vinod for sketch night? We are close to your future offices.
You'll love it up here!
Once again, welcome to Seattle!
