See main pages for detailed information.

A book about this will be out soon. Showreels of the art (graphics, conceptual, and narrative story generators) will be online soon.

Micro Arts was founded and mostly coded by Geoff Davis, who has a Masters (research) from Middlesex University in Electronic Arts, and taught at Sheffield Hallam University (Psalter Lane art college) and London University of the Arts, and many London commercial training companies. He also runs Story Software which publishes apps and websites, such as Notes Story Board v 2.2 and others.
