I still like to do stuff outside of here too and if you wanna have a gawk check it out at which is rarely updated, or which I've been updating surprisingly often. I got a couple other things in the works too and I'll update this as they go belly-up. So yeah! I guess my advice is:

bum around and have fun, then get lucky when you decide to make an effort"

Peace! Pearce!

The only questions I am ever asked about my work here at Weta are "how the heck did you get a job?" and "can I has your job plz?"

I can't give you this job because I need it to support my glamourous lifestyle, but I will try to outline how I ended up in this enviable position.

I'm afraid I don't have too many tips or much useful advice, but this is what worked for me! You'll have to find your own underhanded methods I guess. I went to school in Paengaroa, then Katikati, then the big time! Hamilton! I hated school with every ounce of my angst-filled being and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Later I started playing in some bands and making a few comics, so I guess those years weren't a total waste. I'd pick up any freelance work I could doing ads and posters and stuff but surviving on the dole mostly.

I moved to Wellington about 8 years ago and did a bunch of illustrations for children's books until I applied here at Weta. I got real lucky with my timing and had a heap of robots and junk in my folio when work on Evangelion had just begun. A pretty choice first project! Pity it bummed out.

Since then I've worked on heaps of fun stuff- I GOT TO DRAW DINOSAURS FOR KING KONG! All we need now is a feature length epic about a robot who crashes hotrods into explosive in barrels in slow-motion and my career in film will be complete.

There's always lots of non-movie things going on here that we get to do drawings for as well. I have stuff in our reasonably priced World of Kong and Crafting of Narnia books, I've worked on kids shows, web design, memorial sculptures, collectables and that big-ass Tripod in town. It's pretty cool really.
