Moody Artists studied art, business and graphic design in the mid 80's at Southend College Of Technology gaining an O and A level B/TEC and London University diploma for art and graphic design BCTE certificate. During college he worked for 'Samson Souvenirs'. After graduating The MoodyArtist worked for a couple of local graphic studios who's clients list included 'Southend United' and 'British Airways'. After working for 'British Airways The MoodyArtist took a flight of his own and moved to Spain in the early/mid 90's,where he worked as a TEFL teacher and freelance illustrator. Working on a regular basis for Editorial Spes (Barcelona).Clients worked for were: Larousse, Vox and Harraps dictionaries. In time this opened other doors and he illustrated for : Cosmopolitan Magazine, Bayer Hermanos Calendars, El Razon ( Spanish Newspaper), Barcelona Connect and a dream job to illustrate for Playboy Magazine (BCN). He also exhibited his work at galleries and comic shops such as: Kactus (Manresa Spain), Juegos Sin Fronteras (Barcelona), Cosmic Alien (Barcelona)The Mask (Barcelona),Norma Comics (Barcelona). Being a member of La Asociacio Catalan D'llustradors (Catalan Association Of Illustrators) he contributed 5 of his illustrations for their book 'llustrado Mas Grande Del Mundo'(The Biggest Illustrated Book Of The World). On returning to the UK, finding work as a freelance illustrator proofed a very hard mission indeed. Resulting in The MoodyArtist working for a local printing company until last year when he left to start up his own t-shirt business designing and printing on tees and mugs. Sadly this venture proofed to be a disaster.
The MoodyArtist is now the proud owner of Work Of Art Gallery WOA!
