James Gilleard about himself: "I am an Illustrator and Animator living and working in London. I love old cartoons - 1950s animation, vintage film posters, pulp comics, past future predictions, birds, dinosaurs, robots, 1960s cars and loads of other rubbish. Over the past six years I have created animated title sequences for various TV shows, music videos, concept designs for children's television, interactive comics, web based animations and games, story-boarding, illustration for adverts, magazines and books.”
