Hi! I'm Samuel, a character designer and 2D artist living and working in Adelaide, Australia. I started out my career working in publishing, illustrating a few children's books and readers, before joining games company Mighty Kingdom in early 2017, where I worked for three and a half years as a concept/2D artist. I am currently working for animation studio, Flying Bark Productions, as Character Layout Lead on “Lego: Monkie Kid”.
I have a bachelor's degree in design, specializing in illustration from the University of South Australia, where my focus was design and visual development for animation and games. Having this degree means I am eligible for the E3 visa to work in the United States, which has no cost to employers.
When I'm not working, I like to surf and skate, play basketball, drums and guitar, and a lot of my spare time is spent learning, doing online classes, people sketching, and working on personal projects. I’m also working on a personal project I intend to pitch as an animated television series.
My current goal is to work as a character designer for television animation.
