Hi!

Thought I'd write a little journal since I'm not as actively present as I used to be.

I'm still hard at work storyboarding our games at Eidos Montreal-Square Enix. It's been 5 years already!

I have a small project I've been doing since Spring with a lot of procrastination, a storyboard-animatic-animation of sorts.
It was supposed to be a test to see if I could do limited animations in a rough sketchy-doodle style like I tend to do but ended up doing it clean (which takes longer, requires more patience, less visceral) . Phase 1 of 3 is done (storyboard phase).  Now I'm turning it into an animatic with wonky software.

Despite same diet and amount of physical activity (nearly none) I've been gaining more weight. Being in your thirties sucks for that. I've more or less been living a teenage geek's life for a bit and I'm considering changing major aspects of my lifestyle to change that. I've struggled with this for years and the need for that change starts to feel more and more urgent as my body gets older. It's not so much about denying myself of the geeky things I like but to perhaps not focus my life around it so much outside of my professional life.

So far this year I've had a generally more positive outlook in life compared to previous years, just the beer belly weight dragging me down XD I guess I mostly used to write journals when I needed to vent/complain/expose my insecurities in the past. Though it gave you some insights on the internal struggles that some artists may have it also painted a picture that is hard to digest. I'm a little sorry about it but I am thankful for those that lent me their ears---eyes.

Again, check out my Twitter for those random doodles twitter.com/padderooz , love you all and I'll be back with more stuff to share like always : )

I'm a storyboard artist with 2D animation skills (and college degree) and with a childhood dream of doing comics. Currently I do storyboards for video games aiming for excellence in visual storytelling while also doing other tasks helping people have a clearer picture of all the hazy confusion there is when starting a project and through milestones. I hope to storyboard on big movies someday and maybe release a self-made comic book or two in the future. I also have an immense knowledge of all things video games and would love to have a more creative role in that field eventually.

Current job : Storyboard Artist at Eidos Montréal - Square Enix
Storyboards so far: Rise of the Tomb Raider ; Deus Ex : Mankind Divided; Deconstructed; How It's Made; cancelled Bubble Gum Crisis live action film; Storm Hawks; Pérusse Cité (on one episode); a bunch of Nestle cereal commercials for Pascal Blais; SuperBook; and more.
Current Residence: Canada (Montreal,Quebec)
