Art isn’t my specialty, but my first reaction is that you should look through all the art posts Luke does here. Look through the artist’s websites and see where they’re posting their work.

This is actually the same realization that inspired this article!
The full title is “Should You Quit Your Current Non-Games Related Job To Pursue A Different Career In One Of The Many Various Roles Involved In Making Video Games, Be It Design, Art, Marketing, Operations, Production, Or Many Others” but it got shortened in editing.

He’s in the game, along with every other candidate. (I actually downloaded it and opened it)
We sat like that for a full minute and a half and that guy couldn’t score
UPDATE: I just found out the answer to why there’s footage of the reception in this video that’s being played at the reception. THEY LITERALLY END THE NIGHT WITH A VIDEO OF THE PARTY YOU ARE CURRENTLY AT.
Man, if they had a full dress rehearsal with fireworks, I can’t even imagine what the actual reception was like.
I’ve actually shot some same-day wedding videos. I would like to point out some things.
I can tell you for certain that if it’s a crew of more than 20 people, it doesn’t matter what city they’re in - they’re getting a tax credit from someone.
I don't live there, I just visited twice and loved it, and I know that a lot of indie developers live there (which is part of why I visited).
Hahaha fair enough
