I have been working as a Designer and illustrator and in the past I lectured Digital design & Illustration. My strengths lie in design fundamentals and illustration. I have extensive experience with vector art in Illustrator as well as traditional media graphics in Photoshop. I thoroughly enjoy the challenges that motion and animation brings. Detail-oriented and driven to advancing my craft, I welcome new puzzles and thrive when I am learning new skills and concepts.
Growing up in the rural Eastern Cape, I spent my days watching cartoons, climbing trees, and doodling monsters. It was all over for me though when I saw my first Computer at a friend’s house, and realised with an unbridled lust “I must have one.” Since that young age, I have been ruining life and relationship in front of the glow of a mechanical brain.
I am passionate about illustration and art that tell stories and I consider modern games and film media to be an art form that has surpassed that of the fine arts for the last 30 years. Eloquent and well read, with a deep understanding of culture trends, working as part of a creative team is an exciting prospect.
My work ethic places great value in planning and ideation, and nailing down the basics before you jump head first into a project and attack the fine details. I place great value in group discussions over the merits and faults within work produced, and learning through group interrogation of design aesthetics. Having gone through traditional fine arts training as well as a design program has given me a great respect for alternative ways of approaching problems, and the value of sweat in the problem solving equation.
I seek opportunities that allow me to improve the skills of my craft and as a human being. Organizations filled with passionate people and a strong sense of community is crucial in my self improvement process. I am presently expanding my experience in UI / UX design. I focus on using my interpersonal skills to coax the best out of any team members
