About me
I’m Izel Dugen, illustrator and digital storyteller based in Leeds, UK. My work is narrative and character-based and thematically responds to and investigates the abstraction of human relationships through technology. I am particularly interested in technology that seeks to create a simulacrum of romantic interaction, such as otome games and AI, and the metaverse. I am currently on the Channel 4 Content Creatives programme.
