Biography edit · view history

Richard Beston co-founded the UK game development studio Darkblack Ltd in the summer of 1998. When the company was forced to close in 2002, he took along most of the team at a new company HotHead Studios. It was however short-lived, as it was both opened and closed in 2003.

He moved on to the company Pocketeers, doing art for Electronic Arts for several Nintendo DS games in the Need for Speed series.

After that, he left the videogame industry and became a tattoo artist with his own company Sunderland studio.
