I am currently watching the live pitching session at nordic game, where 5 sponsers hear pitches from budfing game creaters… and they are rough.
These people are tearing people to shreds, which makes makes me hope that I never have to pitch in a business capacity. I like being an artist and maybe I should stay that way.
To celebrate that I drew anmermain who just doesn’t understand.
I went to a talk with carri bugdee who had created a twitter community around the amc show “mad men”
The talk was about whether or not one should engage your fanbase or keep away from them. I found the whole thing vastly facinating and so engaging, that I drew Carri hrrself as she would look as a character on mad men
Some times, when I don’t know what to do, I just start drawing the backs of people in front if me. It is a way to keep myself engaged
I went to the talk from the guys who did the ios game “the room” which I possibly the best game on the ipad.
While he talked I did this doodle, which I showed him afterwards.
He did seem surprised and delighted that I hsd done a bit of fanart while he talked and he has not been the only one. Most of the drawing I do while people are talking, I show them and so far, nobody has been offended.
There is nothing better than sketching whike listening to a talk, though I might have gone a bit too far with this one
I just watched a talk at unite nordic about a new educational game that is attempting to teach children programming called the machineers.
During the talk, I created this bit of fanart to show my support for the project, because they need money. Here is hoping that they will get off the ground
Listening to rovio’s talk at unite, which is anout their newest game “bad piggies” and why they choose unity to make it.
It is great to hear from a company at the top if their game about tge game. I created this piggy drawing to celebrate them

I was at a great talk from redbthreat games about their new game “dreamfall chapters “. I was really inspired, so much so, that I decided to do a bit of fanart on the spot, even without having played the game.
This is probably the last post of the day, as the con is closing up. I can say that I have hsd more fun today thst I thought I would, even if it gas been a bit hard to maintain my concentration all day.
Having never really been to a con before, I was interrested to know just how closely it resembles a normal school-day. You watch someone talk for an hour, then you have a 15 min break and then you watch someone new talk for an hour.
The only big difference is that at a con you aee actually very interested in what people have to say… and they hanf out terible free coffee during the breaks
Ithas been a while since I was in school (well, any sort of traditional school anyway), so my sitting and listening skills have deteriorated somewhat. As a metter of fact, a was almost nodding off during the keynote earlier today.
To be fair, the keyote was a speach from unity executives about the newest version of the program, where they pretty much just listed a bunch of new features, but still, I should have payed attntion.
This is why I have decided to keep my mind active, by doodling throughout this entire event. With any luck, this will keep me awake and alert while people are talking.
