Hello, I Am Gerard Thomas

I'd like to say I am big in Japan... but I'm not.

Through my passions and interests I have managed to do a lot of things in the field of design - from designing motorcycles (Ducati Motorcycles), apparel, and experiential installations (for the likes of Sony, MountainCycles, Telstra, NZ Navy...), to doing illustrations for magazines.

I'm that person HR type people can't cope with.

Unashamedly drawn to conceptual ideas and design that can only be described as uniquely Japanese in their thinking and identity, when I am not working on websites I continue to develop my own, increasingly abstract, corner of the science fiction universe... 👇

I can also be found doing the odd piece of commercial illustration or design work.


An odessey in short form...

My current work in progress, MAG-100 is a collection of sketch stories that together, begin to uncover the history of a far future.

With the writing now complete, I am working on the visual content.

You can visit the MAG-100 site here, to stay up to date with progress via my newsletter or social media: twitter | instagram | mastodon


(SO FAR...)

I have been writing online since 2004, about 'stuff' which interests me - work, hobbies, sport.... This is is my collection of articles, some of which are old, some not so much and all, thus far,  surviving the dreaded cull.

I still write occasional articles, though mostly spend time working on my art & design projects, which I chronicle in my sketchbook.
