Paul Gerrard
Paul Gerrard
Character Designer for Movies, Tv and Games
UK, United Kingdom

As a kid growing up on 80's cartoons such as Masters of the Universe, TMNT, Dungeons & Dragons.... obsessed with character art books and a total film fanatic it was inevitable that character design was going to be my path. To give each character I create life on the screen , there is nothing that compares to that. Having worked in film for many years I have given such life to TMNT, Hellboy and D&D characters along with a plethora of movie icons, Tv show fantasy antagonists along with creatures and horrific monsters. I guess I never really grew up.

"Master Gerrard's work penetrates the numbed pleroma of our hellborne gothic consciousness like some bastard biomechanical spawn of Clive Barker and H.R. Giger, hotwiring long dormant circuits and conjuring chiaroscuro dreamscapes at once shockingly alien and brutally famillar in a visual symphony twisted body armor, chitin, kevlar and tortured flesh. There are indeed new worlds here and new and deeper hells, proof positive that chaos never died." Richard Stanley

‘Paul Gerrard is a conceptual visionary who consistently produces work of mind bending originality.’
Miles Millar / Showrunner : The Shannara Chronicles

"if you can imagine taking the nightmares of Giger and the dystopian scope of Beksinski one step further , then you can imagine the work of Paul Gerrard"
Jonathan Liebesman : Film Director

Be creative , be ambitious and never give up.
