BREAKING NEWS: Skeletor vows to take vengeance on Drive Ahead! players

As players continue to fend off a series of attacks on Hot Wheels City by sinister creatures of unknown origins, the biggest and baddest villain of them all, Skeletor, has announced his intention to wreak havoc on the city, in “Skeletor’s Revenge”.

Come April 10th, players of Drive Ahead! will be treated to a free five-week game event, featuring new and exclusive Skeletor-themed Hot Wheels rides, as well as an epic helmet modeled after the infamous antagonist himself, available for a limited time only. Getting to these event prizes will be no easy feat, as players must battle not only Skeletor, but other menacing creatures hailing from Snake Mountain and its surroundings.

Working with Mattel and Hot Wheels has allowed us to really double down on the collectable nature of the Drive Ahead! cars, with new vehicles with real-life Hot Wheels counterparts being introduced weekly. The positive fan feedback has surpassed even our greatest expectations, and with this kind of reception, it’s hard to even imagine what the introduction of an iconic character like Skeletor will look like. It’s safe to say we’re expecting to break records.

Skeletor’s Revenge will mark the sixth and final episode of the Hot Wheels Wednesdays series of in-game events, a collaboration between Mattel’s classic toy car brand, Hot Wheels, and Drive Ahead! As part of the 50th anniversary year of Hot Wheels, the partnership has introduced Drive Ahead! players to classic Hot Wheels baddies like spiders, gorillas and sharks, while enabling them to unlock and collect digital versions of actual Hot Wheels rides. This final episode presents the loyal protectors of Hot Wheels City with a threat of unprecedented scale, in an in-game representation of Skeletor from the classic Masters of the Universe toy series.

I was born in Colorado. My father is retired army, so he was stationed in South Korea back in the early nineties. And that’s where I “grew up,” until I was in grade school.

We moved to Missouri after that, where I finished high school. I was originally going to study law at a university not too far from where we lived, but I realized at the time that it probably would have been the worst decision I could make. I was still trying to figure out what I wanted to do, and who I was. And then I remembered the time this woman from an art school in Chicago visited a class of mine. She had seen some of my sketches, and recommended that I apply. I had never thought about pursuing art, until that moment.

Fast forward a year or two, as I’m sitting there wondering what to do with my life, and I thought of her again. Luckily, I was able to find her business card, and I applied. I ended up moving to Chicago, and tried out a few different art schools. It was difficult, though, because I didn’t have much student aid or financial help from my folks. So I drifted in and out of school, leaving and then coming back at different semesters.

I finally started at Columbia College Chicago, but unfortunately after about three years, I had to drop out. I just couldn’t pay for school anymore. It was a bit of a unique situation, though, because I was also freelancing at the time. So even though I dropped out, I was able to go straight to work. It was pretty difficult for the first few years, as I slowly started to figure out my process. I don’t know if you’re familiar with working as a freelancer?
