Work Onsite:
Thanks for reading my profile!
I've been an illustrator/animator for the last sixteen years, and have a wide range of experience from pencil to graphics tablet.
I specialise in Photoshop illustration and character design, be it caricature, cartoon or realism.
I like to use a mixture of the above to disguise the digital element wherever possible.

My work has primarily been in animation and tv, although I have illustrated two books and am working on my own now.

I've just finished a two year stint as the Assistant Director of a children's tv show called 'The Cat in the Hat knows a lot about that' where I coordinated and fixed designs to keep them in the Seussian style as well as reviewing storyboarding and animation for the project.

I'm a dedicated worker and will do all I can to meet and exceed my client's expectations!

Thanks for reading!
