If I didn't tell you what I did for a living, I told you I worked long hours, unpaid overtime, sometimes have to work weekends without pay during busy periods. If I told you all this and then said, I could be made redundant at anytime, maybe because of the studio shutting down or say a credit crunch. You'd say: " What a crap job"!! but if I don't tell you what I have to do, but tell you what I do, I'm a games artist...you'd be like: " that's so cool"!
So why do we do it if this is our lot?
