So I’ve made it a habit that when Blizzard Careers posts new job opportunities on Twitter and the Warcraft twitter account retweets it, I take the opportunity to be a dope and apply for the job right then and there, whether it be human resources or character artist.
I do this on the off-chance that they might actually hire me, though by now, I’m sure Blizzard HR has sent a memo to its staff with my Twitter username and saying, “UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE YOU TO OFFER THIS PERSON A JOB.”
I still hope, though.
Not to let a challenge go unanswered, I dusted off my long-neglected artistic skills, drew up a scene of five rogues in the Elwynn Forest, and presented it.
Well, I thought it was funny.
Little while later, Kathy Zun, a talent sourcer at Blizzard, tweets me back with some constructive criticism, but high praise for my clear artistic skills.
All well and good, and a fine top off to my little joke.
My beautiful artwork is at the Blizzard Entertainment Museum.
I don’t know how it happened, but it did.
I have no regrets.
This is amazing. That piece just.. floors me.
