My name is Simon Rodgers.
I am a concept designer and visual development artist working in the animation, film, videogame and illustration market. I like to design with a very holistic approach to story encompassing the character and geography with an eye for composition, mood, lighting and sequential flow.
We serve story. We are all storytellers.
Sometimes I get to design larger set pieces and action sequences and sometimes that stuff blows up.
I probably drink too much coffee.
