Interview with Graham Toms, NewTek
February 15, 2007


Ask an industry veteran the most important thing to have to get into the business and you'll probably get, "a strong background in traditional art." Most will ignore this though and go straight for a technical understanding of a specific 3D. One person who can be considered to be on a crusade against this is Graham Toms. A traditional artist long before making the transition to 3D, Graham's a Disney veteran with gallery shows to his credit. Proficient in a variety of mediums, any restaurant foolish enough to not put out napkins will soon find its tablecloths the victim of Graham's obsessive compulsion to draw every minute. Graham recently joined the NewTek staff to specialize in the revitalization of the education program for 3D products. He took some time out of his busy schedule, which splits time between Ireland and Texas, to tell us about his history and his plans for his new position.

Great interview and faulous artwork, Graham. Your artwork always seems brimming with a unique sense of the absurdly fantastical. Interesting insight into traditional art techniques.
