The Technical Artist

What?

“The job of a Technical Artist is to make the pain go away” (ta.org)

“I like to think of myself as ‘proactively lazy'” (GDC 2017 Tech Art Roundtable)

 

I’ve been a Tech Artist in the games industry for almost a decade. When I started, it seemed no one really knew what it meant. Turns out, we still don’t. Every studio categorizes what we do differently.

It’s exciting, crazy and stressful, sometimes all at once. I wouldn’t have it any other way!

 

This website started as a place for brain dumps. Then I realized no one would ever look at it.

So I’m now slowly filling it with information that hopefully will help people out.
