Projects

Some projects I’ve been a part of that defy simple categorisation. Working on weird things makes me happy đŸ™‚ Latest top.

Busara

Busara is a part of the Enter Africa project, by Goethe-Institut. Spanning 15 African countries, to create one pan-African boardgame as cultural cultural expression by Africans, for Africans, in the medium of games.

I wrote about the inception of the project in Addis Abeba in October 2018, and about its official release at Gamescom, August 2019.

Download the game as a print and play free from enterafrica.org/busara.

 

Walk With Me

An audio story (podcast) about Johannesburg, told by Johannesburgers, from the perspective of a visitor. Produced as part of the Enter Africa project.

Octocrab

A group of Johannesburgers came together to build something for the 2019 Afrikaburn. I drew silly stuff and, together with a team of amazing people, evolved it into structural engineering, into wood and steel, and into a living structure in the Tankwa desert, then finally into ember and ashes. What an experience!

 

A MAZE Train Jam 2018

December 2018, I assisted Thorsten of A MAZE in organising the first train jam in South Africa, from Johannesburg to Cape Town. With the assistance of Goethe-Institut, we got a group of 30 creatives to make games about nature in the 32 hours ride down to the first Playtopia festival.

 

Spiritcritters (personal)

At #AfrikaBurn2016, I gifted people I met these pokemon cards that I drew while we chatted. The little gift grew into an ongoing project, and now I have drawn over 300 spiritcritters for people all over the world.

They’re collected on the spiritcritters tumblr.
