As a 2D Artist at this small but vibrant studio in the heart of Canterbury I had the pleasure of working in a tight knit team on titles such as 'Captain Planet - Gaia Guardians' and the Amateur Surgeon Series. I created background, character and prop illustrations and aided in UI and graphic design tasks. The work required strict adherence to deadlines, excellent communication and an iterative process with constantly changing parameters and requirements. Not to mention a good sense of humour that could translate into the characters!

Nathalie was such a joy to work with! She listened to my input, and could always understand what I wanted, even when I didn't do a good job of explaining it.

And the resulting illustrations exceeded my expectations - her art for my book is beautiful and whimsical and everything it needed to be. ...
