Job title: I’m a Lead Artist here at PikPok
What do you actually do: My job is to first and foremost deliver the game’s Art Content, on time, on budget and to a high visual standard. As a Lead I’m responsible for all visual content that makes it into the game I’m working on. As PikPok has moved deeper into the mobile space, I find myself doing more and more production art, which I love!
The best part of working for PikPok: The people! This studio has been a huge part of my life for the last 13+ years and I have no regrets. Every project is challenging and still delivers the same sense of pride and satisfaction when it gets pushed out into the world.
What do you do for fun: As I sit/stand at a computer all day long, I felt I needed to have a contrasting hobby, something very physically demanding. So in my out of work hours I spend a lot of time at the gym lifting weights – it’s something that I have a huge passion for. I also have competed in a number of Natural Bodybuilding competitions, the most recent of which saw me winning the Overall Men’s Athletic title. It can be extremely difficult prepping for a bodybuilding competition and working on time-critical projects simultaneously, but it’s all part of the challenge! I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m also currently studying for a Personal Training Certificate to learn more about all aspects of fitness and general health.
