I'm a multimedia artist who specializes in illustration, using a graphics tablet and Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to render my paintings.
I've have been painting all my life, and 2008 I decided to move from traditional formats to digital.
In High School I studied art, where I practiced mainly with pencils,acrylics and water colours. In University I took figure drawing classes for 2 years as part of my multimedia studies.
Since then I have freelanced, working on various projects such as 3d animation, 2d book and poster design, as well as a few web projects.
Over the past years I have worked on a few illustration projects for family, friends and small businesses, so I paint not only as a profession but as a hobby too.
I am a comic book illustrator / designer with more than ten years of experience behind me. I have worked for various companies such as They Did This, Supa Strikas, Mamba media, Media 24, Jincom entertainment and Eight Limbz clothing. I have also done graphic design work as well as storyboarding and character and landscape conceptualising.
Companies I have done work for are the above mentioned as well as FNB, Maskew Miller, Media 24, Move! Magazine, National Geographic Kids, Runners World Magazine, Totem Magazine, Cereal:Geek Magazine, Siyasiza Magazine, Bicycling Magazine, His People Church, Alexander Forbes, Cape Union Mart and many more…
I am an effective and efficient illustrator.
Gary illustrates in pencil and renders his artwork digitally with a unique and stylized crisp edge to his work. His main focus and strength is in character development which is often extended toward animation, comic and cartoon strip creation. 3D illustration & animation, storyboarding and caricature design add to his wide range of abilities.
Gary also does live drawing for corporate presentations and in-house training sessions which creates a more powerful and memorable message compared to the traditional slideshow.
With over 15 years experience in the advertising industry as a graphic designer, art director and now owner of his own agency, Gary has illustrated and animated for local blue chip clients including Bidvest, Sasfin Bank, Steers, Clover, Investment Solutions, Alexander Forbes, Southern Sun, SAA, Deloitte as well as international clients in the USA, United Kingdom and Nigeria.
A passion for illustration and strong work ethic reinforce Gary as a competitive force in his field.
I am an illustrator, and have recently completed a one year internship at Am I Collective. While working at Am I collective, I have learnt to paint digitally. Before this I worked almost only by hand and just did my touch ups in Photoshop.
I am a resourceful and imaginative professional with experience ranging from gallery administration to design for advertising.
Nick L’Ange is a Cape-Town based freelance illustrator with an adaptable and flexible style, although his specialty lies in cartoons and comic book style illustration.
He spent his high school years studying fine arts and design at the National School of the Arts in Johannesburg. Upon matriculating he moved down to Cape Town and enrolled at Michaelis School of Fine Art at UCT, but left to pursue an alternative career in music and sound engineering by studying at City Varsity.
However, the scratchy song of the pencil is forever in his heart, and graphite his bones, digital paint his blood!
Upon completing his sound engineering studies he landed a job at Strika Entertainment, where he worked as a full time illustrator for five years, working on projects for clients such as Caltex-Chevron, MTN, Eskom, SARS and African Bank.
In 2010 he made the move to full-time freelancer, doing jobs for clients such as Heinemann, Maskew-Miller Longman, and Macmillan, as well as a variety of jobs such as storyboarding for TV, and poster design for NGO community uplift projects.
His services include book and magazine illustration, storyboards, designs and layouts, concept art, character design, portraits and caricatures.
However, no stretch of the imagination is too far, and if you name it, Nick L’Ange will draw it for you!
