You make some pretty sweet pixel arts and codeses - how much do you think art and programming overlap? Do you think these skills live in the same category, or do you see them as totally separate practices? TLDR; does art-ing help you code? :D

i think they overlap a lot - in both the good things (like creation) and bad things (social issues). code is just a medium honestly - it can solve non-art and art problems. art is an expression of creativity and sometimes i express that through code. the hard part about art and code is prioritizing how it falls into my everyday life. i am by no means paid to be an artist, so the creation of art definitely falls behind my day job - which sometimes is a night job because dev rel is wacky like that. but, tl;dr - in my life art and code overlap more than i think it does the average person.
