My name is Stephen Trumble and I am a freelance artist working in the South of England.
I've spent the last three years working on storyboards, concept art and illustrations for feature films, short films, commercials and books.
I've worked in many different styles and media, depending on the brief. Some boards have been big, bright and stylistic; others polished, detailed and figurative. Some have been simple, functional and to-the-point. I've designed characters/creatures for productions, ranging from cartoony to sci fi monsters.
I like to stay as flexible as possible and find my work most fulfilling when I am involved in the creative process. I am bright, enthusiastic and highly productive.
I have served as lead artist/illustrator for books and also for motion comics.
