I love making stuff… But wait – we’re getting ahead of ourselves…
Broad Generalist and Hyper-Specialist
Hello! My name is John Burnett, and for the past decade-and-some-change, TheWingless.com has served as my talent showcase, hosting original works of art, music, writing, games… anything, really.
In the real world, I’m a User Interface Artist, User Experience Designer & Art Director in the video game industry – and have been for more than a decade. UI demands a certain broadness in your skill sets (programming, effects, animation, art, diplomacy, hostage negotiation) while also being laser-focused in certain specializations (usability, iconography, typography). My profession demands that I be broadly talented. My personalty demands that I always try.
You do that for years and years, it builds up a body of work.
Thank you so much for taking an interest in that body of work, it means quite a bit to me. Feel free to contact me with questions, suggestions, or just drop a line if you are curious. Enjoy the site. I look forward to inspiring you to make something of your own.
