Just a quick post to inform everyone that I just accepted a job offer from Rare limited, in Twycross, 120 miles north of London. I will be finally be paid to give life to funny characters on the screen.

Rare is the house that gave birth to the best game on earth “Donkey Kong Country” but also the excellent “Viva Pinata”.

I will be starting on monday and I must admit that I am really thrilled! I will be joining AM students Peer Lemmers and Richie Prado so I should feel like home.

I have heard that the guys in the concept art department work on Cintiq so they d better keep their door closed! ;-)

    and a big thanks to Richie and Trystan for your support in those crazy last weeks I went through. If you hadn’t been there I am not sure I would have found the strength to animate and get this job.
