“See Exeter by Minecraft” is a series of old-style railway posters and a postcard, created for the utterly imaginary St Loyes Tourist Board. A second postcard was created for the equally fictitious St Loyes Education Board, and a very one-off poster for the totally fabricated St Loyes Astrophysics Board.

The images featured are screenshots from Minecraft my home, depicting:

  • Posters and SLTB postcard: Bishop’s Court, Ludwell Valley Park, Digby Hospital, Quarry Lane
  • SLEB postcard: Woodwater Academy, St Nicholas Primary School, Clyst Heath Primary School, St Peter’s School
  • Very limited edition SLAB poster: Kyrangle at sunset

One of the railway posters showed in the AWEsome Art Fair, which featured one piece of work from each artist involved in Art Week Exeter, 22-28 May 2018. Another poster was in the window of The Arcade bar in Fore Street as part of Art Around the City.
