“Stef Brooke-Harris is a cartoon illustrator and aspiring artist for the video games industry.”
I grew up watching my Dad in his Graphic Design profession. I used to go to work with him at a very young age; it was an exciting world of whirring printers, flashing scanners and endless hours of fun laminating whatever I could get my hands on. Ever eager to learn, with a graphics tablet in hand, I would draw cartoons and comics on MS Paint. I learnt a thing or two about the importance of layouts by the millimetre, typesetting and printing lines.
Technology has moved fast, and so has my proficiency with a pen. With a love of fantasy and sci-fi my passion for creation has no bounds with imagination, and with 3D packages, such as 3Ds Max and Maya, in hand; the possibilities are endless. I find great pleasure in designing creatures, worlds and painting a story; in my spare time I love to delve into a game experience.
I’m inspired by animals and nature, and like to depict the weird and the wonderful in my pieces; having a grounding in realism that isn’t afraid to branch out into the unknown.
When I’m creating digital paintings in Photoshop, akin to when I’m playing games, I like to explore, learn and seek adventure.
When I’m not painting, I’m writing, sculpting or sewing. I’ve self-published three novels to date, created a life-size emu out of wood and wire, hand-crafted fantasy outfits out of natural linen and leather, and cast figures for a home-brew boardgame out of pewter; to name a few things that I like to do.
