Illustration

My passion corresponds with all things film; from pre-production visuals to the script.

This large subject area enables me to also explore animation and study visual themes within film, specifically thrillers and their complex storylines. My main final year project exhibits my personal visual language as well as my creative writing skills. Forming a pre-production animation pitch document for my original proposed show named 'Vulpes Vulpes', my aim is to include relative story ideas from a diverse perspective whilst exploring current and cultural themes. Amongst this, I am able to produce storyboards, finished illustrations and short animatics/animations as a result of my interests and abilities. I like to call myself a visual storyteller because I believe there are many ways to illustrate, but ultimately I want to become a Visual Concept Artist and demonstrate my storytelling skills within pre-production in film, animation and television.
