Spore* is the home of graphic designer, illustrator and creator of things Olivier Perkins. Having always had a passion for art, design & doodles, he holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts degree (majoring in graphic design). Always looking to evolve and developing his creative & technical skills in new exciting ways, Spore* enjoys the flexibility of an eclectic aesthetic.

In his earlier years he sailed the seven seas (well a few of them) aboard a 40ft sailboat, before charting his way to New Zealand and Taranaki. Here he put aside his cutlass and picked up the mighty pencil. He is married with 2 children, a dog, cat and 2 chickens.

When not wielding a pencil in a dangerous manner or basking in the hypnotic glow of the computer screen, you can usually find him taking surf photos, drifting around above (or below) the sea on a surfboard, crashing into trees on a mountain bike or falling off a skateboard.
