Sims and art meet in New York

Ed Chow, BFA Illustration

"Ed Chow has made a toy that will be painted, packaged and placed in an installation. There will be multiple versions of his toy with interchangeable parts that represent the customizability of The Sims."

Tyler's take: Ed has really pinpointed the nature of The Sims – it's customizable. Thanks, Ed.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
