I Think I'm An Adult Now?

A little praise report, because God is good: I has a job!  
For serious, I just signed this and sent it in confirming my acceptance of the position of 'Junior Character Artist' at 38 Studios here in MA! 

I'm WAY excited. You can check out their site here.

I'm under strict NDA, so I'm not allowed to talk about the project I'll be working on, but there's some information and concept art that's been released on the site. I think the most I can say is that I'll be working as a Character Artist on an MMORPG codenamed Copernicus. :D

Other news: I'm in Cambridge, Boston  with a summer internship at MIT (continued from the Spring semester). I have a great pad, with great friends, and I get to meet a lot of really awesome new people from Singapore! (and make games!)

Speaking of which, I've got to get to work!

Nick! Nick! There's a thing! I'm not sure if you saw because cross-blog commenting is fishy sometimes.

In other news, you're on fire! This is too exciting! The one thing that irritates me about cool dudes getting jobs is that they're under legal obligation to keep all their neat work to themselves :c I hope you show us anything you do on the side, and best of luck in this exciting new life episode :3

Wow, Congrats, man!
Judging from the site it's a hell of a studio, with all that cool experienced stuff, and they bought Big Huge Games too...
Say, was it hard? Did you send your portfolio, or did they give you a test assignment? How did you find them in the first place?
Pardon me, I'm so curious, 'cause I'm 21 too, but still can't get my ass nowhere near.. ; )
