After graduating as a mature student with a BA (Hons) First Class in Design I started my career as a concept artist for DR Studios, a game developer in Milton Keynes. At DRS I progressed from 2D on to be a 3D artist, creating environment assets and props for video & PC games.
I started freelancing in 2007. Since then I’ve been creating illustrations for children’s books, video games and honing my skills in web and print design. Oh and trying to get Lewis to write something sensible.
Sent to Earth from an exploding planet… What? No? Mmm, ok. Ahem… After my parents were brutally murdered in a… NO?! Lightning? Bitten by spider? Gamma rays? Power ring? Lasso? Magical hammer? Mutant? Weapon X? Super soldier serum? AH C’MON… If I can’t have a secret origin, then what’s the point?
Can I at least have a theme song? Every good designer should have their own theme song… Yes?… Cool beans.
