Anyone know? I remember he started his own 3d game graphics workhouse awhile back.

I have to admit, the idea of carrying a week of food and going for a wander through nature does sound appealing.

Never would have guessed. I can't imagine leaving making 3d art/2d art entirely. It's my passion, and it's only going to get better as the divide between thought and tech and finished product diminishes.

Being around other people is not for everyone and I think its good that Eric realised this is a peaceful way :-)

My guess is he got tired of managing a team of artists, and having to spar with clients every day. I don't remember him being an artist himself but it was so long ago that he was here, I might simply be mis-remembering. As art, especially 3d art, is a deep passion with me, I'll never let go of it entirely. On the contrary: as soon as I get my new computer, I plan to amp things up to 11. With new hardware, OS, Redshift (when it's fully functioning for max), and since photorealism is my long-avoided and much-coveted goal, I've actually got something new to look forward to learning. Haven't felt so excited about 3d since I first go my Pentium 266 to overclock. :D

Are we sure Fyrestarter and Erik Asorson were the same guy?

I remember Erik as being a guy who had a game art dev company, done pretty well out of it and developed a whole thesis of this 'zen' approach to design which centered around 'not caring' about the work you are doing.

Here's a post from the guy i remember, i'm sure Fyrestarter was a different person:

"Fyrestarter" was his old username.
It makes sense also: Asorson -> Arsonson -> Arson -> Arsonist -> Firestarter -> Fyrestarter
