Wayne Taylor is a veteran commercial artist, specialising in figurative sculpting. With a passion for digital character creation, currently learning Digital Sculpting techniques using Maya and ZBrush.
In January of 2008 Wayne set up as a freelance Character Design and Sculpting Service. WAYNE TAYLOR DESIGN Ltd gained it's Limited status in October 2010 with an ambition to utilise cutting edge technologies, such as 3D printing, combined with his traditionally honed skills. Current and recent clients include Bad Taste Bears, Weenicons and Border Fine Arts.
Prior to this setting up WAYNE TAYLOR DESIGN, Wayne spent over a decade as Workshop Manager at Piranha Studios. Supplying original sculpts for a vast array of Character based models (including the seemingly never ending line of Bad Taste Bears.) During this time a short spell working abroad within studios in Hong Kong and Mainland China gave Wayne a expert understanding of the manufacturing process and an experience above and beyond the routine studio day.
Beginning his career as a sculptor at Prelude Worldwide, Wayne honed his skills working upon major character brands such as Family Guy, Cow & Chicken, The Simpsons, Taz, Mickey Mouse, The Mr Men. For clients including Disney, Warner Brothers, Nickelodeon and The Cartoon Network.
