    It is excitement – tinged with more than a touch of sadness – that I must announce my departure from these shores, for the forseeable future.

    As of 12th December, I will be working full-time with Free Radical Design, creators of Timesplitters (1 & 2) and Second Sight, based in Nottingham. My role will be UI artist, with some 3d work, and perhaps overhauling the current website. FRD have really impressed me with their genuinely exciting ideas for their next gen titles (http://www.gamesindustry.biz/news.php?aid=13183), and I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into it.

    I will continue to be a regular visitor to these boards. If anyone is in Nottingham / Derby, and needs a couch for the night, give me a shout.
