Hi everyone

Hi everyone, this is Dan Lin, the lead artist for mindful xp. This includes the graphic design (though Mike is some of that), 2-D art, 3-D art, etc. Each week I’ll try and post some process art and maybe some random comics about the project.

Here’s a screenshot to get a sense of what we’re working on. As you can see right now we’re at the stage where there is just programmer art, but Dan (the art guy here) will be adding his own touches very soon.
