A big welcome to Steve Horrocks who his our latest signing! Originally from Merseyside, Steve moved to California with his wife in 1995 to work for a major feature animation studio and over the years has still pursued his passion for creating and illustrating on a personal level. Following great success in comics and animation, he has just finished his first childrens book and we think, with his beautiful drawings, that this is the beginning of a wonderful future in the children's market. Steve works digitally but likes to keep a traditional feel to his work.
Ace artist Darren Whittington has created a series of 6 characters for Gear4 headphones, which have just been launched this month. The client was so pleased with his ideas that had to work within the constraints of the packaging, that he is now working on some new characters to add to the range.
