My work is all about exploring digital media by meshing it with traditional media (and lots of colours!)
This project is based around the visual language of video games; boss fights, death screens and even MMOs. I wanted to create ultimately a completely new product, but with an degree of familiarity to even those inexperienced with video games. I love to illustrate in traditional media but am an avid fan of video games and grew up surrounded by technology; I like to marry these elements in my work just as they coexist in my life.
I create with a curiosity as to how people will react to it. My dissertation explored video games as not just an art form but as a culturally significant art form, which involved assessing the impact that video games have on the individual.
My art has changed and developed a great deal, leading to a very varied body of work; ultimately, that was to my advantage since I have a preference for mixed media.
