Richard Newcombe is a cartoonist, animator, and professional designer. He began his career in Canberra in the 1980's when he was taken under the wing of the well known designer George Micalef. Richard worked as his assistant and was exposed to a multitude of techniques and work flows which instilled in him an unmatched drive and ethic. Fascination with the field of graphic design and cartooning, compelled Richard to undertake formal studies, though the untimely death of his older brother, interrupted this important stage of his life. He retreated to an ashram to recover from the emotional blow, but retained his passion for art.
In 2004, Richard returned to the world of professional design by opening his first studio in Coff's Harbour: Aardvark Productions. The studio specialized in both media and web design for businesses, cartoons, caricatures, and animation. Richard then went on to gain certification in computer animation and film techniques, and his works have since been featured in the Bunker Cartoon Gallery. His work on Aardvark Productions lead him directly to laying the foundations of Relaxed in 2009.
Richard decided by late 2011 that working on Relaxed part time was simply unacceptable. After all, a dream cannot be a weekend venture. It has to be something that you live and breathe every single day. 3D modeling, animation, and design for websites and games have become the reason why Richard gets out of bed every day
Relaxed is growing every single day! We are currently involved with multiple high level projects, including an animated film series called a series of comic strips and a game called Bronson Versus Zombies. We take commissions for any kind of design, and we are especially skilled at providing mobile responsive websites for our clients at a competitive price.
At Relaxed, the majority of designs are handled by Richard Newcombe directly. His skill, experience, and expertise are integral to providing top quality designs to every single one of our clients. When not wrestling an airbrush or computer into submission, he can be found paragliding, scanning the vast landscapes for artistic inspiration. His other interests include environmentalism and kung fu.
