JACK

BILLING

I have been a computer junkie from the day I was born. Because of this, I am massively into video games and movies which underpins a lot of my interest in this industry. I've practiced various forms of media from a young age moving through fine art, illustration, graphic design, web design and have since added 3D under my skill-set. Some of my interests also include parkour and arguing with people on the internet. Moving forward I would like to have a career doing 3D Generalist work and, if not, freelancing doing digital/traditional art, programming and web development.
