Xabi’s Lost World
Xabi’s Lost World encapsulates the personal nostalgia of two very different worlds by combining my longstanding love of dinosaurs with my passion for football and muse Xabi Alonso.

Escape from Syria – Fazia’s Story
Escape from Syria – Fazia’s Story is an animation made with director Jack Newman.
After visiting Jordan, Jack interviewed Fazia – a Syrian refugee who fled across the border from Syria with her two children. He asked Fazia’s young children to draw pictures of their journey.
This animation takes inspiration from the children's drawings and uses the voiceover of their mother Faiza to tell their story. It hopefully also highlights the shocking numbers of displaced children along with the large numbers of Syrian people who simply just ‘disappear’ under the Assad Regime.
