My name is Steve Paul Myers and I studied Interactive Media Design at Northumbria University and graduated in July 2011.
I am an illustrator, interactive media designer, web designer and I wrote my dissertation - From Comic Books to Graphic Novels: The births, origins and the revolution they caused. An Investigation and Discussion and it was about the evolution of the comic book and I'm in the process of getting it published.
I have been drawn (excuse the pun) to art and design long before University and I have been posting on DeviantArt for years. I have created several infographics and I have a panache for social media.
I am also very fond of character design, I created a mascot and logo called Dimitri for my portfolio site and then developed Dimitri further by creating a video game based on him.
My other passions are cooking, movies and music.
I currently live in Newcastle Upon Tyne in the North-east of England with my beautiful girlfriend, two cats and a monkey who steals my socks.
