  • I recreated my local pub in VR
    I recreated my local pub in VRAs part of a project for Wired UK, I circumvented Coronavirus-enforced quarantine by faithfully recreating my local pub (Skehans, Nunhead) entirely in VR, and filled it with my pals in virtual form, bringing our Zoom chats to life using a mixture of motion capture and animation.
  • How To Bullsh*t Your Way To Number 1
    How To Bullsh*t Your Way To Number 1I designed the covers for Oobah Butler's debut book 'How To Bullshit Your Way To Number One', which has - aptly - gone on to become a USA Today, LA Times and Barnes & Noble #1 Bestseller, and fair play to it.
