Episode 2: Technical Art – It’s art. Technically.

This episode I sit down with Technical Artist Greg Bahm, and we discuss.. well... technical artistry. Topics covered include what technical art actually is, what it takes to be a successful TA, as well as some great advice for those looking to break into this type of work. Computer Science major? Art school? What about portfolio work? We cover it all!

  1. Hey, I’d just like to say I find these podcasts very, very useful/interesting.

    I’d love to hear an interview with a level designer, or a game designer.

    Keep up the good work! *thumbsup*

  2. Very in depth information discussed here, good stuff! I like the outro music as well hehe.

  3. Thanks for the comments! I will most definitely have a few design centric episodes coming up at some point. Next episode is about “gaining experience”. So we’ll discuss things like mod teams and internships!

    Thanks for listening!

  5. Hey Aaron,

    I was wondering if you could also cover Game Writers and the requirements and suggestions related to that position.

    Thanks, have a great day!


  6. Downloaded both podcasts. Great idea. Working towards getting into level design myself would like to see that covered at some stage.


  7. Hey, great 2nd podcast!
    I feel you could have talked longer and in more-depth for sure, but I’m sure this will happen naturally in future podcasts.
    Keep it up!

  8. Hey Aaron, just wanted to say I really enjoyed the podcasts so far. One of the guys from Polycount ( had posted the link, and I think it will help a lot of up and comers (including myself) I’ll be sure to spread it around.
