Welcome to my Blog page. I have created this site so I can share my graphics hobby with the online community.
So, who am I? Well, I was originally born in England and at the age of 4, my parents introduced me to Star Trek, I was immediatly hooked and my parents still regret sitting me infront of the TV on that fateful day! I orignally did all of my artwork freehand, including masses upon masses of ships from Star Trek, Star Wars as well as WWII Naval vessels.
When Pixar first came out with thier infamous Lamp animation my friend showed me 3dsmax, we immediatly paired up and learnt 3dsmax on the fly, mainly because there was no other way of learning it. I studied AutoCAD at collage, completing the 2 year course in 2 weeks, all those years playing around in 3dsmax really helped! So I spent 2 years showing my teachers how to to 3d drafting in AutoCAD.
When I left collage I joined the Royal Navy, my intent was to work with weapons, however, due to my mechanical Engineering test scores I was transfered to become a Mechanical Engineering Technician (I had no choice in the matter, this was the military afterall!). After a couple of years I started getting itchy feet, I think been made to work in a department where my heart didn’t lie was a big part of this. I spent the next year basically chilling out, I eventually moved to Ibiza in Spain where I met some ‘very’ nice Danish women, this resulted in me moving to Denmark, where I still live today with my Half Danish, Half Kiwi girlfriend.
I tried a few times to get into the graphics industry, but had alot of issues finding jobs that would pay what they should, it’s amazing how many people expect graphics work for free! I did a little bit of architectural work, but nothing substantial. So my graphics have always remained a hobby, which is something I would like to change now, afterall, it makes sence to have a job doing the thing you love afterall 🙂
