About me

Gender Male
Occupation Illustrator & Animator
Location Cambridge, United Kingdom
Introduction I'm an illustrator and animator with 10 years professional experience. I've worked for clients such as British Airways, U2, Capital One, P&G, Vodafone, Kwik-Fit, Talk Talk, NHS, Dennis Publishing, Leo Burnett GmbH, We Are GT, Weiden & Kennedy, DDB London, McCann Erickson Worldwide and Saatchi & Saatchi NY. In 2010 I decided it was time for a shake-up & change of direction. I wanted to re-engage with my natural creative inclinations, so I left the hustle & bustle of the UK and headed to the Mediterranean. After 12 months abroad, I now work from a studio at St Barnabas Press - a bustling printmakers workshop in my home city of Cambridge. I work using a flexible combination of paint & pencils, and digitally applied print, photographic and pattern elements. I have a dual Mac Pro suite with a pre-press scanner and RIP printer, as well as access to the large format digital print suite and the traditional presses at the workshop. I also have more drawing boards than I know what to do with. Currently, I couldn't be happier!
