FOUR HORSEMEN // (CHARACTER DESIGNER/CG ARTIST) // 2017
Four Horsemen is an SLG/visual novel about what happens to immigrants after the news cameras leave. It's also a story about four lovable teenage goofballs who hang out in an
abandoned World War II-era machine gun bunker. It's also a story about what it means to be at the end of the world. It turns out that these are all the same thing.
My work for Four Horsemen encompassed designing all characters, creating all character art, and drawing all CGs + promo art.
BEING // (CREATOR) // 2017
Being is an abstract adventure game that explores, from a future lens, the past and present of the Palestinian lived experience. The player controls an avatar from the distant future of Palestine on a mission to recover artifacts, memories, and messages from a mysterious house near an old border. The game's aspiration is to convey various aspects of living as a Palestinian during the past century,
ranging from perpetual grief to enduring hope.
Being was a part of Art Palestine International x Babycastles exhibition, Over the Rainbow, which showcased Palestinian art resonating out of the unique and valuable lived experiences of Palestinians -- both in the region and the diaspora. The show ran from March 16th to April 17th, 2017.
