Steve May is from Hastings, and is an illustrator and animator. He’s been doing it for about 20 years. He illustrates many children’s books and mostly illustrates 2d based drawings.
He was always influenced by superheroes, and comics. In university he did fine art, but was just left to draw, so he started off as a painter, moved to animation direction. He then studied animation at RCA, felt he had to please his tutors, and didn’t know what to do.
He then went onto jobs in the editorial field. Editorial work is interesting, especially when it has to be done in a specific time frame
