Like many around my age, the early days of home computers made a big impact on me. They transformed an ordinary television into something magical I could control. The games at that time, while basic, were incredible. Better still I could program my own — creating little characters and commanding them to move around the screen to my designs. The enjoyment of making games has never gone away, and Hewco is an outlet for me to return to my roots and make games for the early 8-bit computers.
In recent times I made some games with Ovine by Design, a name in part coined from a cartoon sheep character I use to doodle on our pub quiz answer sheet.
Jump ahead more recently to 2015 and Awful Jokes was born from the combination of discovering Autodesk Sketchbook and the left overs of a bunch of Christmas cracker jokes. I've been doodling a new cartoon every day since then.
