About me
I’m Megan Watson, a digital artist inspired by cyberculture theories. I explore the glitches connecting humanity, technology, and nature through 3D rendered illustrations, animations, and interactive VR. Based in the Northeast UK, my work has been featured in multiple magazines and local exhibitions. I’ve created numerous music videos and EP covers for musicians. Notable designing the visual concept for Moonray Pixie, supported by Brighter Sound I collaborated closely with Grace Stubbings to bring the alter ego of her production work to life. Graduating from Goldsmiths University in Southeast London in 2020, I discovered my fascination for narrative design after studying critical and speculative design. A very fast-paced course that encouraged an understanding of sustainability, social responsibility, and ethical debate within our design practice. ​ I’m interested in converting aspects of nature into digital formats, working largely with 3D rendering software to explore the modern relationship with nature.
