Jake Collinge is passionate about both design and illustration. With a wide variety of visual interests, his experience has brought him from Illustration to Video Games and then to Feature Animation, where he has worked on films including Escape from Planet Earth, Ratchet and Clank and Puss in Boots.
Jake first entered the industry as a modeller but always held on to his desire to design. He is motivated by collaborating with other artists and the honest fact that art is a lifelong study, which pairs greatly with his love of teaching and sharing. If you ask nicely, he might even show you his first ever digital paintings that will really prove the notion that hard work is more important than talent.
