Service Description

I have a background in animation, having gained an Upper-class Honours in Animation from Duncan of Jordanstone in 2010.

Since then I have found success working as a freelance illustrator. I have worked on diverse projects for an array of clients including Google, Edinburgh- based production company Freakworks, YCN Talent Agency, MyBookland and many individuals.

In completing these jobs I have produced quality work to deadlines, interfaced effectively with art directors and other members of production staffs and implemented creative changes when required.

I have been creating my images largely digitally in the last few years and thus have a high level of knowledge in Adobe Photoshop as well as a number of other drawing and painting packages such as ArtRage and Corel Painter.

I am also confident using the following programs:
TV Paint Animation
Adobe After Effects
Zbrush
Maya
Nuke

During the course of my degree I also had instruction in:
Flash
Illustrator
ToonBoom.

Maintaining my web presence and websites has also led me to become familiar with using Dreamweaver.

While producing work for clients I always provide sketches and other necessary work-in-progress images promptly. This provides my clients with the opportunity to assess the work being produced as well as to provide feedback at many stages of the process. Once sketches have been approved I then proceed with producing the final artwork.
