Alexander Price is a 3D artist and animator, based in the North East of England. He is perhaps best known for his work as the lead character artist and animator on the highly anticipated, upcoming video game SkateBIRD, to be released in 2021 for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC. Alexander is a recent graduate of Northumbria University, with a first in their BA Animation programme.
Alexander's influences include 'Y2K' artists (both of the time and retrospective artists; admittedly a generalising term) such as Jeremy McKeehen and Kentaro Mori, and old WinAmp visualisers.
Outside of creative endeavours, Alexander is an outspoken advocate for the rights of neurodivergent and disabled people. This is what motivated his most recent film, GEOCHROMA. Disabled and neurodivergent people are discriminated against and stigmatised, with such hatred still being largely socially acceptable, or at least treated as innocuous behaviour. Alexander aims to meaningfully contribute to the headway made by the autistic rights movement and promote genuine acceptance over manufactured 'awareness'; both through his creative output and through what little social media following he has.
More to the point, Alexander is a passionate believer in self-advocacy and community-driven resources and support as opposed to the norm of having big entities decide what marginalised groups' best interests are.
Alex also (prior to COVID-19 lockdown) organises, officiates, and competes in local fighting game tournaments; specialising in sharing and promoting lesser known games that have aged out of relevance and/or do not have active esports investment. He (along with some help from hardware expert d0pefish) built perhaps Europe's only competitive Super Famicom (SNES) setup, using it to run tournaments for the cult favourite Sailor Moon S fighting game.
Alex taught himself basic HTML and CSS skills from scratch just to make this site; as he wanted to make the site uniformly reflective of his work and style. Professional web designer honeyist provided great assistance with the layout and implementation of Alex's site.
