biography
My name is Brian Finlay and I am currently living in Saint John, New Brunswick Canada.
Having studied animation at N.B.C.C Miramichi and at Sheridan College I have but one studio credit,
mostly due to the costs of moving to new work especially when you are just starting out
both career and family wise.
I intend to work on my own animated short(s) in my basement studio,
which is two steps past the boiler right next to the rat trap,
of course should a position which is longer than six months come along or some
“ work from home “ freelancing occurs I’ll take the change.
My goals are to make a living in animation and to work for or with as many animators as possible
so I can learn and develop artistically.
Secretly I would like to work for at least one big studio.

Interactive animation CD- Brian Lemay
biography
For over a decade and a half I contributed numerous artistic works, as a free lance artist and illustrator,
prior to my 2-year college animation training. Commissions included graphics for apparel designs,
company logos and letterheads, brochures, newspaper ads, etc...For a few years
I also contributed single-panel cartoon captions for a local newspaper.
I also experimented and was commissioned to produce a few acrylic paintings for a few organizations.
In college I was part of a team who helped assist and produce small animations for Brian Lemay and his interactive CD
that is currently still in production (has been for a few years now).
The CD is based on his 'Designing Cartoon Characters for Animation' book (ISBN # 0-9699419-1-9).
I am currently employed with a marketing firm in the city of Moncton, province of New Brunswick, Canada
(called Foresight Marketing and Design Ltd.- www.foresightmarketing.com).
This company has a newly created animation division as well. My job title is that of Creative Director
and I assist in the provision of hand drawn artistic visuals for the graphics department, including any animations as required.
I believe in strong, solid networking in the animation industry in order to foster personal artistic growth, knowledge, and development.
I love the camaraderie and wisdom shared by all who are involved in this trade. So much so that I created my own animation club,
called ANIMATION FERRET, to try and appease this networking need
and have since enjoyed having members of both professional and amateur animation status register within it.
Artists of various mediums and enthusiasts included.
All are welcome to visit and/or sign up in order to view the awesome artwork samples on exhibit by the animation membership
(Go to http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/animationferret ) as well as participate in the terrific, constructive topics and discussions being posted daily.

comic strip artist, illustrator, writer & wannabe animator (time'll tell).
credits include
I had a two page strip (Betty Swallocks) run in Custom Bike for 2 years & have had one panel affairs printed in B.S.H.,
Airgun World & a few ladies magazines which would do my (already pitifully low) street cred, no favours if mentioned.
I've contributed illustrations to trade magazines & been fortunate enough to land a few book covers (still available at hippy.com).
And to get my head around sound manipulation (with animation in mind)
I figured out cooledit pro & fruity loops to do Hippies With Attitude at madtrip
( but its not really up to much at the mo )

After getting a degree in biochemistry, I felt the
logical next step was to work as a waitress in a
poorly lit Irish bar in Morristown, New Jersey. 6
months of this persuaded me to go home to the UK and
get a proper job in the pharmaceutical industry. 7
years later and I realised I didn't like that much
either. I gave up the company car, comfortable career
path and guaranteed income to do something I actually
enjoyed.
I have been a full-time cartoonist since 1999 and draw
the strip cartoon for Brighton's daily
newspaper, The Argus. I also provide cartoons for a
variety of other clients in print and new media. Some
of my portfolio can be viewed at my website.

I'm an unemployed animator/illustrator whose wanted to draw comics since I was 11.
I really like doing any sort of concept art including character and concept designs
as well as storyboards and illustration.
My new favorite thing is figuring new ways to utilize Flash as an illustration tool.
