About the artistArt curated by
Tell us about yourself: I'm a publishing designer/illustrator by day who likes to sit down at my trusty cintiq and let out the critters in my head to play at night.
What's a day in the life of Simon like? Well, it usually starts wit me dragging my bleary-eyed-and-sorry-arsed self out of bed sometime around 6:45 AM, juggling the kids for a while, then after a typically soul-destroying day at the office (I kid) come home to the family and slowly return to normality for the evening. Sometimes a critter crawls out of the headspace any time after 10PM, and the little bastards take over my drawing arm for an hour or two.
What does Simon says? Something incomprehensible before my morning coffee.
What was your favorite as a kid: comics, cartoons, or movies? Was there a specific title you liked most of all? Well, child of the eighties that I am, Masters of the Universe was my drug of choice (and the shelves of my office prove that I'm still quite the plastic crackwhore), although Transformers and Marvel's 'New Mutants' ran a close second and third respectively. I still feel that the weird mix of Bill Sienkewicz and Rob Liefeld during my teenage years has left an indelible mark on my creative make-up (still trying to wash the Rob out ;o))
MAC or PC? I was once a PC-only kind of guy, but my shiny metal iMac is ... so ... damn ... PRETTY!
Any shout outs? Most definitely - my fellow co-conspirators over at the Game of Kings project deserve ludicrous amounts of love, the ever-amazing Rhys McDonald, the multi-talented Nick Ford, and the bearded brilliance of Douglas 'Hellhammer' Von Holgate to name but a few. Hell, pretty much anyone sitting in my Redbubble profile watchlist is worthy of a lot of love, hugs, and strictly-platonic man-love.
