Here’s some artwork I made for Hallowe’en. I recently finished working as a caricature artist at a theme park. The work was fun and it helped me level-up my art skills a lot.

The best thing to come out of this has been the chance to share my ideas with people and get some (phew!) positive responses. This is a diagram I’ve been signing in the air to students to try to explain how there are different kinds of game design work in the games industry:
