Douglas Bowker: Animation. Design. Video.


I started out as a professional product designer and model maker, but alongside that I also was an ardent lover of film and photography. I made the leap from machine shop to CAD modeling first, and then on to 3D product design and animation soon after. Graphic Design, shooting/editing video and Motion Graphics all were natural extensions in my creative path.

Ever since, I have been exploring the limitless possibilities to visualize new and compelling ideas. From still images, to the world of 3D animation and video, I've spent over 15 years honing my image creation skills and look forward to each new project whether illustration, animation, or video production.
