I originally trained in cartoon animation with aspirations of becoming the next Walt Disney, and although I have become particularly strong at creating characters and making them live, breathe and act onscreen, I have also grown fond of what can be achieved in a single static image - without the limitations of pesky things like gravity, room to move and a punchline.
I work with a pencil, a pencil sharpener and a piece of A4, but use my trusty computer for colouring. During my career, I have dabbled in animation and cartoons for language...

Service Description

I originally trained in cartoon animation with aspirations of becoming the next Walt Disney, and although I have become particularly strong at creating characters and making them live, breathe and act onscreen, I have also grown fond of what can be achieved in a single static image - without the limitations of pesky things like gravity, room to move and a punchline.
I work with a pencil, a pencil sharpener and a piece of A4, but use my trusty computer for colouring. During my career, I have dabbled in animation and cartoons for language courses, brochures, posters, television commercials, music videos, websites, television series work, webgames, etc...in both Freelance and studio environments.
I am honest, reliable, hard working and organised with fantastic work ethics, have an eye for detail and am able to maintain an approachable, positive outlook under pressure.
