Recognise anything here?

My 'Flamenco' illustration has been used as a poster in the set for Rachel's Bedroom, in Channel 4's online 'alternate reality game' called Routes. The poster was hurriedly emailed off to my friend Kim at Oil Productions, who designed and built the game, to be printed in a matter of minutes before filming began.

Routes is played online via spaces like YouTube and the Routes website, and is an interactive narrative that uses the real world as a platform, involving multiple media and game elements to tell a story that's affected by participants' ideas or actions.

It's all very clever, and if you want to read more, here's more on Alternate Reality. Something tells me this is the future of gaming...or should that be storytelling?
