It was a great joy to model at premier concept design school Syn Studio today, demonstrating I:33’s 14th century European martial arts for artists who are training to go into Montréal’s vast video game industry.
Thanks so much to Salgood Sam for inviting me again!
This work is by the following artists (I’m not 100% sure of the order), Salgood Sam, Lydia Wong, Tatiana Tung Gerencer, Renée-Claude Dostie, and Dany DiSalvo.
Every time I think of Iris and Barry as a couple, I think of one of my favourite Bollywood movies, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai where there is a quote said by Shahrukh Khan’s character Rahul that I feel says everything about the importance of the Westallen relationship. In the movie, during a class discussion on Romeo and Juliet and the concept of love, Rahul states “Pyar Dosti Hai” which translates to “Love Is Friendship”. He goes on to say “If she can’t be my best friend, I can’t be in love with her” and I think this fits with the dynamic Iris and Barry have in the show and is the perfect embodiment of the Westallen relationship for me.
