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 an holistic approach encompassing story, character, and geography with an eye for composition, mood, lighting and sequential flow. We serve story. We are all story tellers. Sometimes I get to design larger set pieces and action sequences and sometimes that stuff blows up.
I like learning and playing outside the box whenever possible.
I probably drink too much coffee.
