Hello! 

Thanks for taking the time to look at my profile, I'm Fred and I am an Sequential Illustrator and Storyboard artist. I call myself a storyboard artist as most of my work is used to help or convey a story. Whether thats for a book or Graphic novel/comics. I also storyboard for T.V, film and animation and hopefully move in to the gaming industry. As part of my interest and love for the sequential narrative this also has led me to being interested in character design and layouts for animation and games. Which in turn also informs my love of creating comics and I am in the process of writing my own graphic novel series which I have also followed on to se as a pitch for an animated TV series.

Over the years I have worked on anthologies and group projects within the indie comic/ publishing sector, where I have created short comics and illustration collections based on a theme.

My educational background has always been in art and design. I took a Foundation course at Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication. I then decided to take a BA in Sequential Illustration along with Oxford Brookes and recently furthered my studies with a storyboarding course at Escape Studios, where I was taught by Blue-Zoo's own storboard artist and received some verybasic training in PanlForge. 

I also speak conversational Japanese and want to expand my work internationally. I plan to also create my own Youtube channel giving information to those seeking a career in the creative industries via my own journey.
