Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Concept artist/designer for major companies in the video-game and media industries since 1996, working from my London roots to various postings around the world, including the USA, Australia, Hong Kong and SE Asia. Been lucky to work on a wide range of material, from Warhammer to Re-Volt, Hellfire, Spongebob Squarepants, Might & Magic, and a whole dollop of time on my own pet project, graphic novel Salsa Invertebraxa.
My wacom tablet never gets a chance to cool down, updates are on the way.

If you haven't heard by now, one of the other great portfolio sites out there, CGHUb closed its doors last week without any fanfare, warning or formalities of any kind. If you had an account there, my sincere condolences....it's utterly irretrievable.

This has forced hundreds of artists to find new pastures, relocate their contacts and set up fresh portfolio's, not an easy thing to do at zero notification. But like the forest fire, such a meltdown can work wonders for manure and sowing the buds of re-growth. The biggest lesson learnt from this is the classic "don't keep all your eggs in one basket".

There's been a tremendous upswing in activity as sites clamor to fill that vast gap in the jungle.
DA is of course the biggest out there, so I have no doubts it's been picking up survivors.

But new domains have been popping up recently, almost spookily.
One of the best I've found so far is Drawcrowd, which is just pure eye candy from pixel a to pixel z. If you have an account there already, or want to set up a new one, swing on by when you're done, I've set up a new gallery @ drawcrowd.com/mozchopz0de8
and i'll be happy to follow your portfolio.

Another couple of places in the offing are Artstation, www.artstation.com/ which is very similar to Drawcrowd, but promising to offer more in terms of community interaction, your own website portfolio if you wish (with pro accounts)...

...and Zerply, zerply.com/, which offers artists a more "Linked-in" type of experience, with job offers, professional contact circles and whatnot. Have a sticky beak at these places, you might find something useful.

Of course, none of this is to replace the great resource that is DA, simply to share your work in different formats, and to ensure your web presence is earthquake proof and be able to withstand sudden collapses :)
If you know of other sites please drop us a link,
Onwards and upwards,

I admire your work, specifically Salsa invertebraxa. It is a wonderful project, a great story and just fantastic illustrations! I would like to make an advertisement of your book at my blog (viventibusesse.blogspot.sk/) and recommend it to other people from my country (Slovakia). May I use some of your pictures from Salsa invertebraxa story for such a blog post? Of course, all of them will be properly credited. Thanks for your reply in advance!
