Ho Ho, I would LOVE to work in the video games industry - concept design; mine tends to be 'retro' but sadly I'm simply not good enough to do it (and a quick look at my gallery would explain why). But this for me would be a dream job - and that said, love the work in this gallery. Any chance that I ever had was way back in the past when the sort of stuff that I was would have been cutting edge.
