This is really more than any Art Director deserves.
Not literally, but I scratch my metaphoric head frequently over the magic that has happened here. I am clearly going to reincarnate as a silverfish, or one of those annoying little plastic price tag fasteners you have to nibble off of shopping mall clothing, because this time around has been an embarrassment of riches. What an amazing and diverse team we built.
I couldn't be more proud of the work we've done, or of the team of steely-eyed, bare-knuckled, 'Monsters of art' we assembled to do it-a team as wonderful to work with as they are talented. If you love Halo like we love Halo, this is the concept team you deserve. I can't stress this enough-this just doesn't happen. These talented people finding themselves in one place, working together seamlessly-what you're seeing is as close to magic as I have witnessed.
It is important to note that we were given great footing on this journey. Big thanks are owed to Bungie for crafting such an engaging universe, so complete and still so rife with opportunity and invention.
