About me

My names's Alex Dempsey, I'm a freelance Graphic Designer and Cartoonist from London. I graduated in 2012 from the University of Hertfordshire with a First Class Honours in Graphic Design and a Design Award from Google. I've also won the Young Cartoonist of the Year Award for further bragging rights. I've worked for various studios around London, designed t-shirts and graphics and have had my work published in a number of books and comics. In my spare time, I enjoy baking and solving Rubik's cubes. I also run a popular webcomic series about Rabbits, I wear a lot of hats. I’m a confident self-starter who’s always looking to do more with my creative talents and grow as an individual. I hate being unpunctual and loathe having nothing on my to-do list.
