and welcome to my website. My name is Tim Tripp, I'm a freelance
cartoonist, designer, multimedia developer and illustrator. I live
in Christchurch, New Zealand with my wife and two sons. I have a keen
interest in photography and mountain biking.
have a diploma in graphic design from Christchurch Polytechnic and
7 years experience in advertising as an art director/designer. For
the last 15 years I have been freelancing, as an illustrator, designer
and more recently multimedia developer. In 1993 I exchanged my drawing
board for a computer and nearly everything I do now is created digitally.
I work on both Macs and PCs. The software that I have most experience
in are: Painter,
Director, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Freehand, Peak and DeBabelizer.
have developed this site as show case for the work I have done.
Some of the work I do is commissioned by advertising agencies, magazines,
publishers and clients, but most of what I do are self funded projects
such as my graphic novel "The Dragon Slayer",
the Bears CD-ROM, and the sequel I'm currently
working on, "Art in the Park".
& comic strips
I have been drawing cartoons as long as I
can remember and enjoy creating my own characters. See some examples
published and unpublished of
panel cartoons, comic strips and the graphic novel "Dragon
A gallery of illustrations I have done for
magazines, advertising, children's books and CD-ROM. I've included
traditional artwork and work rendered on the computer. I use a number
of different styles from cartoon to realistic and have included
comments about the original brief, how I went about doing them and
the materials I used.
Over the last 10 years I have acquired some
programming skills and am now spending more time working on new
media assignments. Find out about the "Art in the Park"
project I'm currently working on, the sequel to my Bears CD-ROM.
