Until one is forced to believe that Art is Dead does one find resonance in the truth that Real Art Never Dies.

Shank 2 Game

Shank 2 is a beat 'em up, side scroller game I helped out with last year at Klei Entertainment.

For the most part, I animated game objects and background elements. So if you see a barrel, boat or box smash into pieces, I might have animated it. Maybe a structure crumbles or an organ flies out of a corpse. I might have done that too. Water, broken jeep, killing contraptions, doors, cocaine, squid - I might have drawn and animated it. It was a big change from doing character animation, but it worked out well considering I broke my non-drawing wrist a week into the contract. I had to get pretty inventive to animate with one hand.

I did get to do one tiny bit of character animation for Corina, where she is shooting an uzi gun while perched on a side of a wall. That was the most fun.

If you like blood and guts and blood, you'll probably like Shank 2. Check it out on Steam, XBOX or P3: http://www.shankgame.com/ Shank is one angry dude.
