About Me

Hi I’m Tane. I’m a self-motivated creative working in caricature and graphic design going on 8 years. Originally from Byron Bay and the Gold Coast, I’m now settled on the east coast of Tasmania in a little town called Scamander.

I’m an easy going fella who likes to get along with everyone. With that in mind, I’ve developed a caricature style that doesn’t offend as often as some other caricaturists. My cartoony style takes the edge off so everyone can enjoy the thrill of seeing their likeness on a page!

As a boy I drew cartoons constantly. Through school I developed my skills for illustration, attending tertiary education to study graphic design for 2 years and web design for 2 years. Afterwards I spent 3-4 years in a Gold Coast web and marketing agency as head designer. I’m now freelance as an event caricaturist and designer.
