In 2012 I founded 'The Bear Page', a small multimedia company specialising in Illustration, Graphic Design & Animation. Above is a sample selection of the 2d work I produced, including T-shirts designs, pamphlets, books, & custom illustrations.

Bear Page Showreel: Includes televised animation and various graphics for companies such as Gael Linn, Boston Scientific, Dance Ireland, Gcore Technologies & HighRock Productions. Entire reel created by myself. Softwares used include Cinema 4D, Blender, ToonBoom, Adobe Photoshop & Premiere.

I use my Youtube Channel (Qwormi Warmi) to experiment with illustration & visual storytelling through drawing timelapses.

 

In this example (titled 'Closing Doors')

I rendering elements of a scene from a set, underlying pattern or weave. My intention was to play with ideas of connection, and subsequent loss.

Much of the work on the channel looks to find a flow between music, the drawn line and the images that are forming. Created using Sketchbook Pro & Photoshop.

During my time as a Cameraman, I was frequently approached by directors seeking storyboards for their film concepts. Above is a sample from two films I boarded, 'Andreas was here' & 'Sweetshop'.
