Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Bob Sparks

Freelance CG Artist//Illustrator//Designer

London, United Kingdom
As a London based Traditional & Digital Artist with a passion for all things creative, I find inspiration in the smallest of things.

Specializing in Fine Art at a Diploma Level, and progressing onto CG Arts & Animation, over the course of my University life I have focused on acquiring a multitude of skills, ranging from traditional 2D work to the digital medium of 3D.

Whilst growing as an individual so has my artistic flair, becoming aware of the many different creative avenues to produce new and interesting work. Driven by my need to create, I am always willing to improve my skill set, often branching into areas of design that are unfamiliar.

I am currently working freelance, and am looking for any opportunities in the design industry.
