User Bio

Murray John was born in Krugersdorp, South Africa on the 16th of March 1974 and grew up in Johannesburg.
After completing his schooling he studied advertising, leaving in 1994 with a student “Clio and Loerie” craft awards (his first animation).
He spent the next year and a half working as an Assistant Art Director at Young and Rubican and Hunt Lascaris TBWA, and at night he would roll himself in a fine Persian rug and lie at the bottom of the garden with a silver fork in his mouth hissing at the neighbors.
Since leaving in 1996 to go “traveling” in Europe, Johannesburg has become a much safer place.
1998 he applied for work experience at Bermuda shorts and ended up being a runner for the next 8 months, making coffee during the day and helping out the directors at night and did as much of his own work as possible.
Since then he’s been a Directing, Animating, Designing and Illustrating and picking up the odd Free-lance job here and there.
