How to get paid to do things that you love

A session at WorthingDigital: How to get paid to do things that you love

Thursday 28th March, 2013

8:00pm to 9:00pm (GMT)

We’re excited to welcome BAFTA award winning digital artist and speaker Seb Lee-Delisle in March.

Seb co-hosts the Creative Coding Podcast, delivers popular JS & HTML5 training courses and likes to make interesting things that engage and inspire people. He will be speaking about his work & answering your questions.

In 2012 Seb was awarded an Arts Council grant for the large scale installation PixelPyros (the official launch of the Brighton Digital Festival), closely followed by a commission for the Dublin Science Gallery GAME exhibition, Lunar Trails, that features a full size arcade cabinet and a 3m wide drawing machine.

Seb has a personality flaw where he finds it hard to do things that he doesn’t want to do. As you can imagine, this caused difficulties in the past when he had what you might call “normal” jobs. So by necessity, he has figured out how to do the things that fascinate him, and get paid for it.

Come and hear his story about how he became a digital artist, founded a digital agency that won 3 BAFTAs and then left it, and how he got into this ridiculously jammy position where he decides which projects to do.

And along the way you’ll hear about how he shared a stage with Limahl, chatted with Mark Hamill about stormtroopers in the pub, and inadvertently triggered a full scale terrorist alert.

To find out more about Seb, visit his blog seb.ly and follow him on twitter@seb_ly.
