Project Title: ‘Moon Born’

“My work is a table-top skirmish game called ‘Moon Born’; it’s similar to a board game. I spent most of the project designing and sculpting a set of tiny characters for the game. It’s supposed to be a parody of right-wing Republican themes vs. popular counter-cultures from the 1980s and 1990s.

I can’t quite believe it’s done this well. I still have this sneaking feeling that they’ve picked my name out of a hat! I didn’t expect this at all.

I’ve decided to stay on at AUB and study on the BA (Hons) Modelmaking degree next year. This past year has been amazing. During the course, there was so much work to do. When I completed the course and handed in my work, I realised just how much I enjoyed the process. It was fantastic!”
