Bill Greenhead's Photo - Cartoon Illustrator und Animator. Vereinigtes Königreich

Es war 1987. Bill Greenhead, alias Stik, saß dort und arbeitete in Pizzaz, einem Animationsstudio. Dazwischen zeichnete er die Zellen zwischen den von einem Hauptanimator erstellten Keyframes - für eine Aufnahme mit einer tanzenden Musiknote. "Ein Affe könnte das tun", dachte er. In der Zwischenzeit spielte der Soundtrack zu The Singing Detective und Bing Crosby sang: "Leg dich nicht mit dem Dazwischen an." Bereits überzeugt von seinen zeichnerischen Fähigkeiten, war es der Anstoß, den Bill brauchte, um Schiff zu springen, und er bekam bald ein paar Illustrationsjobs. Heute ist er nicht nur Illustrator, sondern auch Schriftsteller, Animator und Künstler. Er lebt mit seiner Frau und seinen drei Kindern in Kent. Er liebt Laufen und Fotografieren und reist oft nach Rumänien, um seine Whiteboard-Animationen zu filmen. Während seiner Abwesenheit spielt er mit seinen Söhnen Online-Spiele.

Ausbildung

Bill verbrachte ein Jahr mit Grafikdesign am Croydon College, aber es war nichts für ihn. Viele seiner beruflichen Fähigkeiten wurden bei der Arbeit bei Brian Stevens Animated Films und dann bei Pizzaz Pictures erlernt. Das Aufnehmen von Cels auf einem Podium und die Spezialeffektarbeit, die er damals machte, waren eine großartige Vorbereitung auf die Computersoftware, mit der er heute arbeitet.

Ansatz

Beginnend mit dem Brief denkt Bill sowohl über die Bilder nach, die ihn interessieren würden, als auch darüber, was sein Kunde gerne sehen würde. Skizzen werden in Photoshop gescannt, und dann bearbeitet er ein Bild digital, häufig auch mit After Effects und Illustrator. Seine Animationsarbeit erfolgt mit Whiteboards und einer Podiumskamera sowie einer Reihe digitaler Tools.

Stile

Bill liefert eine Vielzahl von Stilen. Er ist im Herzen ein Animator und sein Cartoon-Stil ähnelt dem von Tex Avery. Er macht Karikaturen und Geschäftsillustrationen in einem ernsteren Schraffurstil in Schwarzweiß. Für Kinderbücher arbeitet er entweder in einem weich gerenderten Stil oder in etwas, das mit flachen Farben super schick ist. Er kann Arbeiten mit einem Lichtenstein-Look sowie im Jamie Hewlett-Stil produzieren. Zu seinen größten Einflüssen zählen die Spider-Man-Künstler Gene Colan und John Buscema aus den 70er Jahren, Mad Magazine, Beano und das Lichtschwert-Duell in The Empire Strikes Back.

I had the pleasure of working with Bill for the last three years on an ongoing campaign for a latvian Telecom company called Bite. From the beginning i found that Bill's relaxed easy going nature made him easy to collaborate with. We quickly became friends as well as work colleagues and his professional attitude makes him a reliable and important part of our team. I look forward to collaborating with him further and i would recommend to anybody this versatile and talented illustrator/animator.

Bill and McCann Erickson Romania started working together almost three years ago. With one project almost every 3 months, I had the chance to get to know Bill quite well and I have a clear picture of his capabilities. His talent is very hard to rival. He is that kind of illustrator everybody dreams to work with: an imagination with no limits, contageous enthusiasm, the energy of a teenager and the positive mindset of an orange buddhist monk. He is also very up to date with all the technological developments. All in all I wouldn't hesitate to call him no matter how challenging a project sounds. I know for sure he would pull it off.
Dinu Panescu, McCann Erickson Romania
Bill has been fantastic in the development of our new projects with great attention to detail and injecting lots of humour generally and really bringing the whole concept to life. His speed and flexibility has also been a great help.
Katie Knutton - Designer, Red Lemon Press - London
This year was the first time I worked with Bill and I must say it was a pleasure. With his creative ideas and hard work he was able to bring Barney's world to life, merging animation and illustration to create on final output with fantastic results. Thanks! :)
