📕 BIG DATA GIRL (2021)

“There once was a girl, let’s call her “Big Data”,
who was so helpful, you just couldn’t hate her.”

big data girl is a picture book i co-authored with Fred Wordie. words by him, pictures by me.

it tells the story of big data girl, a girl with the power to see her friends’ data. what begins as innocent perfect gifts, perfect medical diagnosis and perfect dating matches suddenly take a more sinister turn. it’s a fable for the digital age aimed to help both adults and young people understand our complex data driven world.
