Key Takeaways

“If you really enjoy art, don’t look at the timeline, don’t get impatient, just enjoy the process and you will get somewhere!”

  • Marc grew up with the common misconception of artists being ‘losers’. His parents worried about him, but when they saw that he is actually doing money by coloring comics and more money than working in a coffee shop, they understood.
  • Marc wishes he got better career direction and counseling on options when he was deciding to be better able to set his goals
  • Marc says that many artists don’t like working on commercial projects, but if you want to entertain people, you have to know this. Have a bunch of interesting studios you would like to work with and work on art that can be used by them so when it comes down to hiring you, they have an easier job to choose you!
  • When Marc was part of hiring process at Blizzard, the first condition was obviously art, but second, equally important was personality. You need to be an amazing artist and likable/fittable person to work at Blizzard.
