Lifetime membership of the Students' Union

I was recently awarded Honorary Lifetime Membership of the Coventry University Students' Union in recognition of my contribution to the Source Newspaper over the past two years.

I did a full-colour editorial illustration for them every month and gained a huge amount of practical experience in the process. The certificate is a great souvenir of my time with the Source so many thanks to president Tom Wood, editor Rich Hayward and former editor Jack Lowman.

YouTube Debut

I have just uploaded my first ever YouTube video, if you follow the link at the bottom you can give it a watch.

'Photocopied' tells the story of a man who must escape from an office using only a photocopier and his wits. I created it for my final Animation module at Coventry University. It took around 300 sheets of individually printed A3 paper and a lot of patience, but I'm really pleased with the results. Let me know what you reckon.
