For episode 29, we were honored to have the chance to speak with Lynn Hogan. Lynn is an artist, author and gamer and she shares stories about working in the game industry and publishing her own graphic novel.
This is a sample of some work that Lynn did for PopCap. (Of course, I picked the artwork from one of my all time favorite games: Bejeweled Blitz!) She’s also recently published a graphic novel through SofaWolf Press, Prydwen: Gods & Monsters, which is a collection of her comics from deadbeatgods.com. Some fantastic material here so make sure to check it out!
We also share your feedback on what games you think are the most visually stunning. I have some great screen shots to share in a gallery that I am putting together. Look for that in the next week!
Until then, game on!
