I'm a freelance digital artist specialising in character animation, explainers, corporate presentations and realising your creative ideas.
If you'd like someone to bring your thoughts and ideas to the screen, lets talk about it.
"John is a very accomplished animator who can adapt to any style. He is a real artist who pays great attention to his craft. Above all else, John is a great mate with a calming aura surrounding him. I would not hesitate to recommend him and I only hope that one day we can work together again."The Mill
John has worked with us on a few of our projects. He is passionate, hard working and, most importantly, a very good character animator. He is a real contributor. Hands off!"Seed Animation
John quickly became an integral member of our production team. He was brought in as an animator, but proved himself equally skilled as a compositor, special effects artist and director. He is my first port of call if I want something doing on time and well."Kilogramme
I would recommend John to any company for any animation project, he's a genuine, hard working, fun person to be around and cycles too which is cool. Look forward to when he can join us again at Studio Liddell.Studio Liddell

There are 3 showreels; one for Animation, one for Presentation work and one for Compositing.
All animation content in these reels has been done by myself unless otherwise specified, while most modelling, texturing and some effects are by other parties.
Some other little bits and pieces that arent in the current show reel, in no particular order! Just click one to view.
I use a few pieces of key software in day to day use, including 3D Studio Max, Maya, After Effects, Photoshop and a few others to fill the gaps and some relevant plug-ins too.
I either work from my home studio, or freelance on-site in companies with larger pipelines.
I often use other professionals to lend a hand on larger jobs where skills are best placed, and this is something I coordinate and is transparent to you the client. From your initial no obligation enquiry, we can then develop your ideas together into a project that matches your budget.
My home studio is in Todmorden West Yorkshire where I do all my remote work, and also regularly work on site with companies in Manchester. Presently my only contact means is via email- I promise to reply quickly though!
