I'm currently the Lead Technical Artist for the Total War conputer strategy game series at Creative Assembly.

My role involves working with artists and programmers to realise the artistic vision in games and develop the pipeline for art asset development.

My other passions include drawing, reading and video games.

One of my other interests is linguistics and have previously learnt German, French Japanese and Mandarin.

    What is tangentine?

    Tangentine is home to the artwork and animations of Jodie Azhar.
    Apparently tangentine is a cross between a tangerine and a clementine, but that's only according to the internet and who believes that anyway.

    In fact it's a bit more like talking about one thing and then suddenly changing subject.
    Tangentine is not a real word, however, tangential is. Perhaps this website is like that.
