Summary

Liam Graduated in 2012 from Huddersfield University and was awarded a First class BA Honors in ‘Virtual Reality Design with Animation’.

It was there he found a love for 3D modelling and sculpting, however he has always been interested in many other areas of the digital art world. Since Graduating Liam has Transitioned to 2D, finding a love for portraiture with a strong illustrative style. He also incorporates brush work to simulate that of a real painting as well as comic style inking line work.

This brush style has now become more present in his recent work (2019) as he emulates real oil style painting "Without any of the mess and no need to run out of supplies". With this in mind he has pushed his style to be more loose, painterly looking and less structured than his previous more illustrative works.

Liam now streams his artwork and plays video games on his Twitch channel, as well as running his printing business from his Manchester based studio in the UK.
