"We’ve worked with Adam many times over the past three years on a wide range of covers, feature illustrations and technical tutorials. Each time, he has delivered excellent-quality artwork on time, and to brief, coming up with valuable creative suggestions on how to improve the project. Adam is one of 3D World’s most trusted illustrators, and we’ve recommended his work to many of our sister magazines."
Jim Thacker, 3D World.
"Adam is a fabulous illustrator who falls among that select group of artists who can truly handle a large variety of genres and capture accurately what his client communicates. Punctual, flexible, and full of ideas. I’d recommend Adam to anyone looking to improve their graphic arts presence."
Steve Kondris, Daz Productions.
"Commissioning Adam for Cinema 4D tutorials has yielded great results as he works to very high standards each time. Adams knowledge and experience means he can meet the requirements of the brief with ease and to deadline. I have no hesistation about commissioning Adam again, for more tutorial content, for 3D World magazine."
Paul Champion, 3D World.
"Adam has done stunning work and amazing effects for us on our productions that have been award wining such as the attention of George Lucas Select and Audience Choice award, and always steps up to a challenge. Adam is a creative talent that makes things happen and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend this artist, creator, and top notch professional."
Shane Felux, Panickstruck/X-ile Pictures.
"I’ve been an admirer of Adam’s CINEMA 4D work for a long time. His work shows off skills in a lot of 3D areas such as lighting, modelling and texturing. I’m such a fan of Adam’s work that we regularly ask to showcase his latest imagery in CINEMA 4D promotional material and he has always kindly obliged.
As well as being a great 3D artist, Adam has excellent communication and presentation skill which makes him ideal to provide CINEMA 4D training. He has trained clients at our office on bespoke courses and the feedback from trainees has always been very positive.
I have full confidence in Adam’s CINEMA 4D knowledge and so long as you wish to achieve the kind of work Adam is experienced in, I have no doubt that you will find his training invaluable."
