How is this for a career in the visual arts? Lee Atkinson's journey over the last 30 years has included animation, interactive and online productions. During this time he has been involved as a producer, writer, Director, creative director, and project manager on hundreds of projects ranging from feature films, television series, broadcast specials, CD-ROM, interactive games, web sites and applications, interactive video, exhibition kiosks, and DVD.
Or....for the layman, Lee is primarily a Director/producer/writer of interactive animation for kids games and web sites these days.
""In the past I worked with my dad (Vic Atkinson), my wife(Kathi Atkinson), and my brother (Barry Atkinson), on TV series such as The Evergreen raccoons, Curious George, Care Bears, and on the feature film "Heavy Metal".
Lee got his start in animation from doodling in production meetings.
"One day it occured to me that my doodles which were always centered around a similar theme of suns, lizards, snakes and fish, might translate into a fun series of paintings. With that in mind I began to carry a doodle book around with me and collected my favourites for eventual transformation from the book to the canvas. I have well over 200 doodles and to date have painted around 30 paintings".
