About Mad Hamster Studios

Mad Hamster Studios was established in 2005 and is the trade name of artist Marcus Truckel.

I am primarily a self taught artist working in a variety of styles and formats from tradition media to digital art. I first began selling my artwork from around 13 years of age and since that time I have gone on to win competitions and awards for my work (recent art and design samples can be found in the gallery section of this site).

I have experience producing work in the following areas:

  • Tattoo design.
  • Portraits and caricatures (both Pet Potraits and People).
  • Corporate/business logo and stationery design.
  • Website design.
  • Motion graphics, Animation and video effects.
  • Storyboarding, cartoons, and comic art.

Throughout my work I regularly make use of creative software such as the following:

  • Photoshop.
  • Painter.
  • ZBrush.
  • After Effects.
  • Lightwave.
  • And many other 2d & 3d Graphics and video editing/effects tools.

This is just a brief sample of work so if you are looking for something outside of these listings then please don't hesitate to contact me and we can discuss your requirements.
