Visual finds from creative minds

Digital artists Tom van den Boogaart has released over 20 free games in the past 3 years. If that weren’t enough, he is also one of the incredible creators in this year’s TIFF digiPlaySpace, where his Digital Bird Playground lets you become a carefree bird exploring a relaxing island. Players can engage in serious things like playing soccer or basketball against each other, or just take a gander at the serene surroundings while picking up sticks, frogs and worms.

Tom took a break from experimenting with interactive animation and videogame design to take part in our VISUAL INTERVIEW. The Rules: we ask some questions; every answer must take the form of an image (or several). Come take a look inside the mind of a digiPlaySpace artist.
