Jeff Lyons's Blog


I'm a level designer and environmental artist currently wrapping up an undergraduate degree at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology.
My childhood was spent divided between playing Nintendo and late 90s/early 2000s PC games, and increasing my parents printer paper budget by drawing as many levels and scenarios for both existing and new games as I could dream up.
