Hey there Jason,
This is a letter of thanks and appreciation to everybody at conceptart.org and massive black, recently I landed a job as a film concept pitch artist for a UK studio, Its essentially my dream job having made the transition from consol games. I know i owe it all to a site i stumbled on while i was unemployed and feeling useless back in February 2003 (almost seven years ago Jesus).
I've attended a couple of workshops (Seattle and newzealand). In Seattle I had a great experience when i put my hand up to draw when there was a spare spot in the Instructor Thunderdome.That had a major part in the direction of my career and life, which i decided to change substantially after returning home to Queensland Australia.
Things are getting insane now with work and art, i don't know how much time i can devote to haunting the forums so I just wanted to say thanks.
