He also worked on Brave and the highly successful State of Emergency franchise. He also realised a lifelong ambition and worked with the creators of Judge Dredd on a video game project for Digital Animations.
Most recently he completed all of the animation and front-end work on Superman for DC Comics/Warner Bros, a No.1 selling App on iOS and is also the Art Director for the highly successful Saltire comic series created by DiamondSteel Comics.
