I'm an Australian living in Japan, for nearly 17 years.
It's a long story, but I'll try to keep it short.
I've always loved art, especially cartoons, and awesome masterful paintings.
When I was a teenager, I wanted to become a tattooist in Australia.
Around 2000, I studied Cartooning and Illustration with The Australian College of Journalism, and received a diploma/degree.
Came to Japan in 2003, got married and started teaching English. It was fun.
I created my own teaching material, flash cards, etc. Everybody loved my art.
Joined the SCBWI and exhibited my fine art at galleries.
In 2013, I started working at Tokyo Disney Sea, as a caricature and silhouette artist. After 4.5 yrs, I quit.
Tried to go freelance.
For two yrs now, I have worked as a professional portrait artist and silhouette artist at prestigious events around Japan.
Still in love with the idea of being a published cartoonist and illustrator.
First I found Will on Youtube, and now SVS.
