I didn't discover CG until I was 25 when I started a multimedia course at my local art college and things just went from there, progressing to a computer animation Masters Degree at Bournemouth University here in the UK, then working at a 3D studio in London. All the time I was working on 3DTotal as a hobby. In 2001 I took the leap and started doing 3DTotal full time and it just kept on growing! and still is! In my spare time ... I like to skate on my longboards, bodyboard on the occasions we get away from it all do the coast, power kite and explore the globe for 3DTotal's unilmate location!
I want to thank all the visitors for their support and hope you all continue to enjoy the site and our products, we have many new site features, CD's, DVD's and books planned for the near future :)
I have always had a love for art and spent a lot of my time growing up drawing comic book characters, mainly Judge Dredd and the X-Men. Now that I am older I still do a lot of artwork in my free time but recently my world has been turned upside down since I joined 3DTotal at the start of 2010. CG is just amazing! I can't get enough of it!
I am kept busy arranging artists to fill both of our excellent magazines as well as keeping the gallery updated with new and high quality images. When im not working in these areas, I'm knee-deep in sorting out content for our many new and currentbook titles. Working with so many talented people is great and all of the artists we use make life easier with their friendly and co-operative nature.
Having studied Fine Art after leaving school I eventually found my way into computer graphics by way of 3dsMax. This led to an MA in Computer Animation after which I started work in the games industry as a texture artist.
After a few years in the industry I decided to accept a position at 3D Total as their resident artist where my tasks now incorporate both 2d & 3d.
