​About Grant Regan

Based in Melbourne, Australia but working with clients the world over, I’m  experienced in  concept art, visual-development, matte-painting, storyboards and promotional art in the film, television, advertising, themed entertainment and games industries.

Sydney-born and bred with over 18 years of industry experience. From mid-2005 to early 2016 I resided in Oslo, Norway where I was fortunate to work with some amazing and talented people on a number of awarding nominated and award-winning Norwegian films and AAA games titles. Along the way I also worked on concepts, key-frames, and storyboards for TV commercials, and I’ve illustrated the occasional book-cover.

Film and Cinematic Entertainment, Themed Entertainment, Video games, Television Commercials, VR, Book Illustration, and Education are among the fields I’ve worked in.

I have a passion for place-making, problem-solving, and story-telling through visual mediums. I love communicating a story, concept or idea through visuals that excite, engage and move, and I enjoy being a part of the collaborative effort to bring an idea or vision to fruition.

A professional, client-focused, experienced, versatile, and engaged freelance artist. Drop me a line to discuss your project and let me assist you in bringing your next project to life.

Testimonials

Who doesn’t like people saying nice things said about them? Well here are a some kind words from some of my fantastic clients.

“You have somehow managed to capture everything I had running around in my head and bring it to life…I am looking forward to taking this and presenting your amazing artwork!

Thank you so much for helping us achieve the vision of this project with such detail and finesse.”

John Reardon
Senior 3D Artist and Owner
Mesh Animation

“Grant is a fantastic artist to work with. We did over the past months multiple projects together where he was involved in the design & visualization stage of several entertainment parks and concepts. All along the way, he was able to read my mind and to translate the magic we imagined into a drawing. He’s a very loyal, organized but overall passionate person with excellent graphic skills!

Beautiful visuals with a lot of detail and satisfied clients are the result of this great partnership. I would highly recommend Grant and it was more than a pleasure to have him in my team. For new challenges I would call him immediately again!”

Matthias Paillot
Theme leader
KCC Entertainment Design

“Grant has proven himself to be skilled, hard-working, adaptable and dedicated, and capable of working to strict deadlines and briefs, and across different projects as required. Grant was frequently called upon to provide storyboards, key-frames and concepts at short notice for TV commercial and other pitches. Grant is a good communicator and worked well with leads and collaborated strongly with fellow team members.”
