My name is Adele K. Thomas and I have ten years experience across animation production design, children's books, phone applications, editorial, 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 most recently was a lead designer on The Working Dog animated series, Pacific Heat. Previously I worked on the design team of the Nelvana series, The Day My Butt Went Psycho (two seasons).
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. I have also donated my time to create artwork for Kastner & Partners Sydney's Motor Neuron Disease Print campaign and The Orangutan Project's Colour it Orange Campaign.
