Gary Bottger

I am an illustrator servicing the market with all formats of illustration including character design, comic and cartoon creation, caricatures and storyboarding. A majority of my work is creating live concept drawing for corporates and live caricatures for events, both corporate and private.

My main focus and strength is live drawing for corporate presentations and in-house training sessions which has become very popular and creates a more powerful and memorable message compared to the traditional slideshow.
Live caricature illustration for corporates and private functions is also one of my services that are high in demand.

Character design and development is often extended toward animation, comic and cartoon strip creation. 3D illustration & animation, storyboarding and caricature design add to my wide range of abilities.

With over 15 years experience in the advertising industry as a graphic designer, art director and now owner of my own agency, I have illustrated and animated for local blue chip clients including Bidvest, Sasfin Bank, Steers, Clover, Investment Solutions, Alexander Forbes, Southern Sun, SAA, Deloitte as well as international clients in the USA, United Kingdom, Holland and Nigeria.
A have a passion for illustration and strong work ethic which reinforce me as a competitive force in my field.
