After many years in London, Gary now lives a little more south in the glorious countryside in Hampshire, UK. He trained as a graphic designer gaining an HND and also thereafter had a career in design and advertising.
After engaging illustrators as an art director it occurred to him that he would really rather be the illustrator.
A chance encounter led to an enrollement in the, now defunct Portabello Cartoon School, which at that time was the only cartoon school in Europe. This lead onto a career in comics, character design and animation for many and varied clients in design, advertising, editorial and entertainment. Represented in the US by Astound US! and in the far east by Yeon Agency.
Gary also has a love of music, jazz, rockabilly, western swing in particular and has played double bass in bands and toured Europe many times and twice in the USA.
