I've been working in the film
animation and graphics industry in U.K., Australia and
Zimbabwe for over twenty years. Feature films I have
worked on are HEAVY METAL for Votetone Productions
[London 1980], WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT for Walt Disney
Animation U.K.[London 1987] and FREDDY AS FRO 7 for
Hollywood Road Productions [London 1990]. I have also
worked on many television series including SCOOBY DOO for
Hanna Barbera [Sydney 1985], LITTLE ELVIS and the
TRUCKSTOPPERS for Viskatoons [Sydney 1997] and CROCADOO
for Unlimited Energee [Sydney 1996] as well as T.V.
commercials including PRITTEX and TELEMENT ANTI-FLATULENT
for Barker McCormack Advertising [Harare, Zimbabwe] and a
music video WARRIORS OF
THE WASTELAND by Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
I trained in graphic design at
the BULAWAYO TECHNICAL COLLEGE OF ART and DESIGN in Rhodesia
(1972-1974) and at WEST SURREY COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN
(1978-1980) in U.K. where I made a short film NIRVANA OR BUST and
achieved the Higher Surrey Diploma in Film Animation.
A "pencil test" version of my film, CANDLE IN THE WIND, about Marilyn Monroe, was
shown on TVS (ANTHOLOGY OF INTEREST) and Foxtel Aurora's
DARK CARNIVAL. I have made several short independent
films - IN THE BEGINNING, A SNAIL'S TALE,
BIGBROTHER IS WATCHING YOU and STREETS OF LONDON.
I illustrated a historical novel by Renier Artens called A COUNTRY DIES and it is available to purchase at Amazon.
also do illustration, graphic and web design and my influences range from
Salvadore Dali to the great underground cartoonist Robert
Crumb to the amazing Dutch graphic artist M.C.
Escher. Some of my designs are available on T-shirts at THREADLESS.
