Freelance 3D modeller and games artist. Commenced my games industry career over 10 years ago, starting out at Warthog on the sci-fi FPS Mace Griffin: Bounty Hunter, and a space shooter of Battlestar Galactica. Most recently worked in house for Sumo Digital on a Tennis release for Sega, Virtua Tennis 2009 for PS3, Xbox 360 & the Wii, and I also worked on Sonic & Sega All-Star Racing. I have recently begun to teach 3D modelling and how that relates to games at several educational institutions including the University of Bolton on a part-time basis. Mod work includes development team leader, lore advice and modelling work for the Battlefield 2142 Star Wars themed mod First Strike.

Well we made it back from our adventure to that galaxy far, far away (Secret Cinema doesStar Wars: London). And it was bleedin' awesome. Want to review the experience, but will have to figure out a way to do it that doesn't give too much away as I don't want to spoil it for anyone considering doing it, must ponder how to go about doing this. If you are thinking of doing it you're going to have to be quick about it as the event draws to a close at the end of the month. Needless to say if you're a Star Wars fan you need to head down to London to take part in this once in a lifetime opportunity to live and breathe in the Star Wars universe for a night.

Here was my chosen persona just prior to departure, ISB (Imperial Security Bureau) Field Agent Talon, on a mission to defect to the Rebellion with plans valuable to the Rebel Alliance:

No pictures from the actual event as unauthorized communication devices were forbidden, after all secrecy was key. But search out Secret Cinema Star Wars and you'll find some official images of the event, but even these don't do it justice, this was an insanely cool event, and it must be experienced to be believed.

Yesterday I bought Battlefield 2142 Deluxe Edition and I have a big problem.
I have updated to version 1.51 Battlefield and First Strike 1.5 (1.55). Battlefield multiplayer works perfectly located servers. Unfortunately, the First Strike servers are not located any. Worse mode network have First Strike Servers tab. I do not know what could be the cause. I'm keen on First Strike because just because I bought the original game. Please help me.

,, Help me TALON_UK! You my only hope!'' :)

**** man, your devotion to the cause is amazing! You're just as good on the drawing side as I am, but miles ahead in the modelling. Respect for the awesome work!

Cheers. I'm kinda like where you came from, a traditional artist first, and then got into 3D modelling. Can be a fairly natural transition if you can get your head around it. In fact I firmly believe that having a good foundation in traditional art is essential to being a good and innovative modeller/texture artist.
