My name is Adele K. Thomas and I have over ten years experience across animation production design, children's books, phone apps, education, web and character flash animation. I'm also a total geek; dressing up for conventions, collecting LEGO mini figures and sometimes i'll appear in TV commercials, film or the background of a TV show.
I live in Australia, based in Melbourne, Victoria and currently work as an art director at Studio Moshi and a lecturer of production design at JMC Academy. Previously I have been a lead designer at Working Dog and part of the design team on the Nelvana series, The Day My Butt Went Psycho. I've just published my first children's book, Animals Eat Their Veggie Too! and about to begin illustrating a new book.
In 2012 I produced, directed and designed a animated pilot for Cartoon Network/Turner Entertainment Asia. It was based around my university honor's year project. You can check out the pilot here.
I graduated from the Queensland College of Art Griffith Film School/University in 2006, where I studied traditional animation. My graduate film Vial of Youth won best animation at the Pacific Film & Television New Filmmakers Awards. You can watch it here.
In 2011 I was assistant producer on a Movie Network/Splicefest Production for Mollusks the Series, where I also was the background artist. That year I was short-listed as a finalists in Children's Book Council of Australia's Crichton Award for children's book illustration, for my work on the Monster Maintenance Manual.
My previous experience includes designing a cast of characters for Zactoons' production God Squad & creating artwork & flash animation for Studio Moshi's various projects. I have previously worked at Bogan Entertainment Solutions on their Cartoon Network project Exchange Student Zero, Liquid Studios as a lead artist working on educational projects and at Hoodlum Interactive, where a tiny bit of an Emmy belongs to me for my work on the Primeval Evolved online interactive adventure game.
