With 14 years of storyboard artistry behind him, Sav has been asked to sketch many things by TV advertising executives. Things that excite (sports, cars, a combination of the two), and those that, perhaps, don’t quite hold such glamorous appeal (roasted vegetables, pints of beer…OK, roasted vegetables). But it hasn’t all been Porsches and potatoes – Sav has also served time as a visual effects artist on numerous feature films; enjoyed an unforgettable term at the legendary ‘Jim Henson’s Creature Shop’; sweated as a cloth layer-upper for famous Brit brands Burberry and Aquascutum; and, perhaps most proudly of all, peddled 99 Flake’s and Funny Feet as a wannabe ‘Mr Whippy’ stationed outside the Tate Britain.
After all the toil, sweat and melted ice-cream, the sketcher of other people’s stories was all set to bring his own tales to life. Charting the adventures of a mischievous, prankster bear, Sav’s debut picture book was published by Walker Books in 2015.
