This talk isn’t about how to accomplish goals or about how it feels to arrive at the destination. This talk is about what happens after. We’ll cover a lot of art work, and the journey of getting to work on blockbuster films, AAA games, releasing an indie game with Nintendo, and ultimately starting KitBash3D. We’ll dive deep into “Post-Release Depression” and the moments of reinvention that come after. Whether you’re a senior artist, or just starting out in your career, hopefully this talk can show some of the do’s and don’t that will add longevity and fulfillment to your pursuits.
