Based in the Lake District, Ian’s career began in technical illustration and he continues to have a passion for structure and mechanics, and loves figuring out how things work. The angles, the perspectives, the intricate details of things are all fascinating to him, which informs his illustration and animation styles.
Ian studied Technical Illustration at Blackpool Art College in the early 1980s.
After discussing the project with his client, Ian sketches out a composition using pens and pencils, and then creates the scene in 3D using Cinema 4D.
Realism, accuracy and technical competence are all hallmarks of Ian’s work, but with the modelling, texturing and rendering tools available in his 3D software, he can create a style to suit any brief.
