Rachel loves bobble hats (“it took me three hours of searching to find my latest one…”) and is a film buff, particularly loving Pixar. “The first Toy Story will always be the best and I love trying to find all the ‘Easter Eggs’ in the films.” Continue reading Rach Garry

“I’m a huge hip-hop head, and this is shown in a lot of my work,” says Zander. “I love music in general and like to represent it though my art and design.”
Anything else we should know? “I’m a massive Preston North End fan and lover of tinned ravioli… Classy guy, as you can tell!” Continue reading Zander Gregson
‘I don’t get much time for hobbies in between working full-time, freelancing and personal projects,’ says Jasmine.
Jasmine has musical ambitions. ‘I started to learn the piano in school – I quit when I couldn’t play perfect concertos after my first 20-minute lesson,’ she says. ‘I’m gonna finishing learning it one day though.’
And until then? ”I’ll probably just toss some more grenades in Call Of Duty…’
Tell us a bit about yourself…
I create characters, logos and posters. I sketch, paint and animate too. I’ve dabbled in making things move in Flash but I enjoy the conceptual side of animation more. I’ve made Exist,a sci-fi motion comic, and Pigtailz & Poplock, a 90s Saturday morning cartoon throwback. I do prefer creating crassly-humoured cartoons over anything too deep or artsy.
What inspires your work?
My work is inspired by everything. If you look at my blog, you’ll see it’s pretty diverse!
I like to experiment with graphics. Everything doesn’t need a brief. I start with anything from a quote, a colour, a texture and go from there. I don’t plan but I freestyle and develop pieces organically.
What is your favourite piece of work you have created?
My favourite project I’ve ever done is Titsgun & Boobgrenade: Bounty Hunters. It’s ‘An animated sitcom with colourful characters and off-colour humour!’Follow bounty hunters, Titsgun & Boobgrenade, as they clean up the streets of San Antonio, Texas. Also featuring Cheesy Pete of Cheesy Pete’s Bail Bonds and his assistant Juanita.’
I even voice Mama Titsgun; a drug-addled, STI-ridden, whiskey-voiced, sagging disgrace to humanity. I’m in the midst of a stylistic reworking of the concept as it’s a little out there…to say the least!
Who is your favourite ‘creative’ in your chosen field?
I would love to be an animation producer one day. Kinda like Matt Groening, Craig Bartlett and Trey Parker/Matt Stone.
It looks like the greatest job in the world. You get to create a character, give ’em a history, make ’em walk and talk and
send them off on wacky adventures which you get to write. I direct voice acting and edit sound too.

‘I live in a bubble,’ says Dawn. ‘I tend to not notice or pay attention to the world around me. My creative mind doesn’t need disturbing – and this often makes me a major target for ‘blonde moments’!’ Continue reading Dawn Ellis
