CALLING TRUMPETTE

  • This is a collection of current work that Jake has been pursuing for his PC game, Calling Trumpette. It is both funny and serious, cultivating an essence of literal and metaphorical introspection through a political lens. It takes place inside of the lower left artery of Donald Trump. You play as a nano-bot that is cultivating minerals and changing his DNA. No political stance is directly stated, Nor does Jake take a political stance. This work should be interpreted at a subjective level.

HYPOTHETICAL FUTURE CURRENCY

  • This is a hypothetical future currency created for the year 2146. The currency coincides with the underwater world I depicted in my mag-lev train station above. Coins and cards are 3D modeled with elements of hand drawn textures (i.e. the eye in the middle of the cards, or the Madonna on the note etc…)
