About the Artist
“Born in England in 1985, (which is genuinely now beginning to sound like a long time ago) I grew up totally captivated with science fiction and it made up about 95% of what I drew. I graduated from the University College of the Creative Arts in Kent in 2006 with a BA in Illustration. After an alternate career as an Art teacher and an English teacher in Japan for 5 year, I started life as an freelance illustrator in 2014. Since then, I’ve done work for movie studios, as well as, having art in exhibitions in the US and Europe. I was recently the concept artist on the indie sci-fi film “Prospect” which is set for release in 2018. In my personal work I try to continue my life long obsession with the world of cyber-punk.”
