Moosebox is South Africa's first Nickelodeon International Development. The production, background art, and animation was all done at Johannesburg’s animation agency 'Mind's Eye Creative'. The 20 animated shorts were created and directed by Mike Scott along with head writer Greig Cameron, and audio from Audio Militia. These shorts were written by many creatives minds from all over SA.
I was one of the truely lucky background and texturing artists on this AMAZING project. I’ve never had so much fun before and was in my element illustration everyday with complete passion no matter how many late night came about ;)
I worked in Adobe Photoshop from the line work bace colouring start, to the finishing art textures.
To the right you will see scene examples as linework, to final product. Followed by a few selected scenes from:
Episode 3: Shadow Of The Honey Badger
Episode 6: Cheese Please
Episode 19: Lost
Episode 9: Pixel In A Haystack

The Green Squad
Gaumont Alphanim Production
During the process ofanimation, background art is always one of the key elements needed to complete a project look as a whole, as well as its entire mood. My role in this, project The Green Squad, was team leader in the line work and base colour department. Each scene had to be drawn and coloured in Photoshop, separating, grouping and labeling each layer in preparation for the final stages of texturing.
In my team completed ±40 of these scenes a per day.

These are a few of the background art environments I did for a short Standford Childrens Health animation ad.
The style had to have the same look and feel as their previous animated adverts (as seen in the YouTube link below) with a soft watercolour monochrome treatment with darker line work. A few scenes like the car scene, more colours were introduced.
I was commissioned to illustrate start up illustrations for an online pet store for dogs called Bark Box, which needed to show characters of 3 different dogs and sizes; the types of food ingredients, their food delivery services; and of course their online medical survives over Skype.
This was also added to a online banner and 2 layout examples for perspective.
A few of my paintings and sketches. I mostly paint people, scenes of beautiful moments captured within movies and photography that I feel a connection to, and in a way fall inlove with - this giving me the passion and heart I put into it. Making each painting really special to me, and hard to part with :)
This is my submission for BAT BUTT - Zine Issue 4 and 7. I was lucky enough to be featured amongst many talented illustrators from all around the world. The Zine is produced in South Africa.
Here I was to create the illustration presentation work for an exclusive morning event for accountants, bookkeepers, CFO, CEO and others who would like to get dressed for the future digital life in accounting based in Denmark

Avatars created for Salary.dk
Calpol is an infant suspension medicine that provides soothing relief from pain and fever for your children, when they need it most.
My client contacted me to illustrate 2 books for clients and suppliers. A storybook for children’s reading and enjoyment together with their parents; and an Activity book. The activity book is full of activities that moms can do with their children as they reach the different stages of development.
My illustrations depict of the story and information inside. The style was simple cute, clear and fun with a bright but attractive colour palette, enjoyable for both children and adults.
I hope you enjoy.
Local TV Advert creating awareness to a youthful audience about the affects of cyber bullying on the web and social media. I created the simple vector background illustrations for the animations of social media Emojis.
Mini story. Esmerelda is one of my favorite personal projects where i've felt the most emotion and connection within creating it. It started as a single illustration but slowly developed into more.
The inspiration came from the beautifully haunting video, Ben Howard's -
Melody is a sweet childrens Christian book about an android girl who sings songs at Coals Bar, a crule owner who treats her bad.
He neglects her, and replaces her with the latest new andriod to sing and entertain the crowds. The story is about a Christian child that finds her in an ally and takes her to Sunday school with him. They all show her love, clean her up and update her with the latest Christian music. She blossoms into the most beautiful android.. The evil Mr Coal steals her back but doesnt like the Religious music, so they win her back in happiness.
The book is busy in printing process so will replace the mockup previews to the real thing soon :)
Savannah Sky is an environment / background artwork piece using this colour palette creating this mysterious mood and moment between strangers, or long lost friends - whatever your mind sees first :)
Inspired by mixed emotions being back in a city and country I worked so hard to escape from.

This presentations target group was for accountants, the character style was it to be as simple as possible, but still very serious and clear of the message being told. This is what I came up with.

Below are the projects I worked on:
