I am a designer and freelance animator working in London. I studied animation at The Royal College Of Art in London and have been working in advertising as a motion graphics artist and designer for some time. I have worked on briefs for clients such as Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Oxfam, Wonga, National Geographic and GameCity.
Illustrative work is now my main focus – I work in a variety of styles using both digital and traditional techniques; I am really interested in vector work and collage techniques using illustrator, Photoshop and a scanner. I often use paint and ink to add texture to my pieces as well.
