I feel a little weird posting such a self-serving piece of news, but wow, Halo.Bungie.Org has a news post up right now noting that some fans of my Halo artwork have started a petition to try and get me a job doing this stuff for real!

And here's the current results:

This is extremely kind of everyone involved, I'm really, really flattered, so much that I don't even know how to react to this! Loss of words, truly. :)
  • Mood: Wow!
  • Listening to: Ennio Morricone
  • Reading: The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury
  • Watching: Doctor Who (David Tennant) !!!
  • Playing: Red Dead Redemption, L4D2

I did it glad i could help you, but as a said in the descritpion levi you should check out the bungie careers, a guy with you talent should do it.
I did it told them that next year I was attempting the degree of Design and technology(game design), you have to subscribe an email to them and they will answer you back, they made me wait a bit before answer me back, but with you bro i think they're not gonna let you wait that much.
here id the [link]
I think you should try at least, as an illustrator you have a talent bro...

Ohmigosh, that's so awesome! I honestly hope the Bungie folks take you on for some graphic novel work. *headdesk* And I'm so jealous, because I want to write for them too. xD

Good luck, you deserve it!

I'm surprised they HAVEN'T hired you. "A Fistful of Arrows" and "A Sangheili's War is Never Over" were (and are) great comics. They're on par with "Blood Line", "Helljumper", "Uprising", hell, even "Boot Camp" in my opinion.

Sorry, Bungie is just the name that came to mind. That's what I get for trying to reply to a journal between games of SWAT.

They've done a good job so far expanding the universe so I don't think they'll have to much trouble as long as they have good writers and good artists.
