The semi-legal guide to the hustling and entrepreneurship in the gaming industry
Wow, we made it to Episode 2 of Jon and Ted’s Excellent Gamecast! Let’s keep this crazy train rolling! We’re joined by friend and special guest Ed Trillo and discuss his 20+ year career in the gaming industry as an artist and art director as well as his strange love for the worst team in football, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers! Hey we can’t all be perfect. Ed also tries his luck at defeating this week’s boss…Bowser! Can Ed draw, create, paint, sculpt, render, and shade his way through this challenge to become the champion? If his skills reflect his favorite team then no…clearly no, that would be impossible. But listen in just in case a miracle occurs!
