He can develop a concept from scratch or follow existing direction with spectacular results and tailored to your requirements. Importantly, his work is informed by a breadth of inspirations which make concept and visual development with Christian a delight rather than a chore for the client. *****”

Christian Bravery

Amazing talent, artist, designer.

The first time I worked with Christian was on a game with EA/Criterion in UK. After a short meeting, he came back with sketches that captured the abstractions that eluded our staff artists. Since then, Christian has become the go-to artist/designer in capturing crucial direction in projects I’ve undertaken.
Christian has the ability to ask the right questions to unmask complicated projects to its essence, and the artistic skill to deliver images that make art directors look brilliant.

This extra horsepower allows our production teams to take more creative risk knowing we’re only a phone call away from Christian.
— Nilo Rodis Sr. Creative Director, EA
“For Guildford’s dev scene, to have a local Concept Artist produce such world-class work makes all of us look good.”
