I worked with SEGA Europe for almost five years and travelled all
across the UK and Europe painting Sonic the Hedgehog and many
other Sega-based characters, Wall Murals and Displays
Eventually moving from Painting & Airbrushing
all the artwork maticulously by hand, to large
format digital printing and creating all the artwork in
Adobe Photoshop & Adobe illustrator. This image of Sonic to the
right was completely rendered in Adobe illustrator, meaning we
could then scale the eps file up to any size for printing many times.
'Creativity is Life' - Sega's motto and something that resonates strongly with me
Working in Hamleys Toy Shop, Regent Street, London was just incredible. I arrived at the store at around 7:00pm, just before closing, and then worked through the night until about 8:00am to get all the artwork completed. The staff room in Hamleys is on the roof of the building - which has 5 floors! So in my breaks I was able to roam around the store alone but the real 'perk' of that job was being on the roof five floors up in central London. I really wish back then in 1995 that I had access to a decent iPhone camera because the views across Londons' 4:00am skyline were breath-taking - Chim-chimney! And I'm sure I saw Mary Poppins . . .
