Bio

Rob Corless is an award winning animator, illustrator and comic book artist from Brisbane, Australia.

Themes in Rob’s art tend to tread into the dark and surreal, often with a nod of humour.

 

Rob is a regular contributor to Strange Aeons Magazine (US). His recent animated short films, Furu ike: Ancient Pond (2016) and Samuel of the Sea (2017), premiered at Cannes Film Festival and played in festivals including MIAF, BIFF & SICAF.
