Soft Science is a Melbourne illustrator, animator and designer. He is dedicated to crafting engaging visual content for print, exhibitions, digital and fun.
Soft Science grew up in the mountains of rural Victoria where he developed a fondness for both drawing and computers that persists to this day. From his childhood coding ASCII stick figures in QBASIC, to now spending weeks at a time submerged in a Photoshop haze; Soft Science can always rely on his borderline-unhealthy enthusiasm for digital image production.
Soft Science landed his first illustration job while studying Games Design at university after applying to an ambiguous advertisement on craigslist. To his relief it turned out to be a pretty legitimate concept art commission, which ignited his passion to further his skills and career in the field of illustration.
