My Bio
Biography?
Currently based in Sydney, Australia we started our careers in animation. While still in High School Joe began by working at Yoram Gross/Forest Interactive while Rob was working at Walt Disney Animation Australia. We re-united together at Walt Disney AA where we continued working for three more years as animators, lay-out artists and designers on projects such as Aladdin 2 and 3, The Lion King 2, The Goofy Movie and Gargoyles. Gaining invaluable experience working in the large studio environment.

Comics?
When we formed Sharp Brothers Studio we primarily focused our energies on producing comic books and illustrations for the international market on such titles as Games Workshop's Warhammer, Warhammer 40 000, Big Bang for Image Comics and Dungeons and Dragons Campaign books.

Wrestling?
Concurrently this lead us to the world of pro-wrestling where we helped write and design the WCW/WWF wrestler the Ultimate Warrior's comeback in 1998. We worked closely with him helping write dialogue and storylines for the popular Monday Night Nitro show. Meanwhile we also produced Flash animation for a variety of sites. Our short The Odyssey placed first in the Best Animated Commercial category at the World Internet Animation Competition hosted by Shockwave.com.

Toys?
Driving for more opportunities outside of illustration and comic books we have been the designers for local toy company Peter Fish Toys for over 5 years, where we helped launch and brand the hugely successful "Catch-A-Bubble" across the globe. We have also worked with Hyperchild designing and providing turnaround artwork for their Hong Kong based line of manga inspired Marvel action figures - Marvel Saga.

Games?
In the field of video games we have done character and concept design for Evolution Games PC projects, Iridon X-Box and PC games and also a number of designs and promotional artwork for Legendo's upcoming "Nintendo WiiWare" titles amongst many others.

Advertising?
We are also known for producing artwork, visuals and animatics for various advertising agencies here in Australia working on campaigns ranging from international beers to womens underwear.
