So I’m twittering about my experiences playing the game Dead Space. Awesome game, highly recommended. I’m on my second play through.
But, back to the I get a follow (on twitter) from someone I don’t recognize, but don’t really think anything of it until I check out who it is. Turns out it’s the Environmental Art Lead for Dead Space. So he shows me a couple of things I missed and then I notice a name I think I recognize. It’s the guy that lived in our group house for a couple of weeks, a friend of one of my roommates.
I do some additional research and well, he is the same artist that painted the triptych sitting in my bedroom, awaiting framing. He painted them 13 years ago as a thank you for letting him stay.
And he did UI design for Dead Space.
Small world, indeed.
