Castleville!


Here's some of the freelance work I did for Zynga Dallas' Castleville game last year. Of all the freelance gigs I've had, this was one of my favorites; nice people, solid pay and fun assignments.

When I first toured the studio, I brought my children with me, then an infant and toddler. It resulted in a harrowing kid-vomit-art-department-greek-yogurt-incident. Super horrifying/embarrassing! It's still amazes me that Zynga wanted to work with me after that, ha ha, but I'm glad they did. It was a great gig.

Castleville is my secret guilty Facebook habit, so I'm glad that I'm supporting an artist whose work I've enjoyed for years. I'll look at these characters way more fondly now too. Great work!

Yay! Thanks Krin! I was actually pretty lousy playing the game. Ha ha. I got so caught up buying clothes for my little person, I kept forgetting to garden, or do anything else. :)

Thanks Amy and Shawn! These were really fun to design. I'd look forward to each assignment. It's nice when a job comes along that's like that.
