When he was eight, Darren Dubicki was handed a large box of drawing materials by a woman whom he’d never met. He assumed she just really liked his drawing of a dragon.
He later went on to study Illustration, became an illustrator and then segued into film and animation too.
For the last fifteen years, he has drawn things, developed things, designed things and directed things for the advertising and entertainment industries, creating characters, worlds and stories for animated commercials, TV series, short films and feature films. His work has received industry awards and nominations along the way. Darren is a Director/ Designer for Aardman Animations.
He rides bikes and has a penchant for ping-pong, and he’s inspired by comedy, randomness and absurd inventions amongst other things.
THE DOOBEREE’S FRIEND is Darren’s first collaboration with author Christopher Wakling on a story for young children.
