A probably opinionated exploration into a world of flight and fancy – analogue and digital. Books, games, art, film, new and rediscovered, Play Forest is propelled by wanting my boys to have broader, more diverse, and dare I say it, more cerebral, interests than what’s being served up in the mainstream today; and in doing so I’m rediscovering all the things I loved but left behind.
Play Forest is also about picking up concepts, ideas and interests neglected and lost… for reasons I still can’t work out!
Dad to two boys (4 and 11 at the time of writing this), technical sport clothing designer and retailer, professional creative, bike rider. In my teens I loved comics, reading, gaming and video games (yes, there were two types of games) as much as I loved riding bikes, running and spending hours at the beach; a life that showed me you don’t have to be ‘one or the other’ but can enjoy everything.
