//miruku is the portfolio of Dan Jutson, a 'specialist generalist' 3D artist from Devon, UK. (the piratey part).
I have been successfully working as a 3D artist creating content for games, VR/ AR and childrens applications for 11 years (+100XP - level: veteran). I have had several successfully published (and some successfully cancelled) projects across PC, console and mobile.
I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to work both on high profile and independent game titles as well as steer my career in some surprising directions. All of this experience, I feel, has given me a very unique set of skills (move over Liam Neeson) and knowledge that makes me an invaluable and hands on game developer who is able to roll up his sleeves and get stuck in! Whether it's creating 3D models and animations or creating concept art or video content, I love to work with small, close-knit teams and push ourselves to create the coolest art and sickest experiences we can!!
I currently live in London with my wife and two mini-gamers. We have a passion for home educating our little ones, going on adventures, the ocean, creating cool stuff and, you guessed it, gaming....of all kinds!
