Who the hell is “Bort.Q”?
Well, it's actually Alain P. Chaperon – “Bort.Q” is my alias.
The following is a watered-down summary of my work history...
Began illustrating children’s books, trucker balladries, and the occasional caricature.
A 10-year contributing cartoonist gig at STARLOG magazine.
Contributed feature-article and editorial illustrations for select IDG Communication publications.
Ventured into web design circa 1999.
Stumbled into a multi-disciplined role as designer + illustrator + retoucher + web designer for Bauhaus, Studio Of Design (later changed to Studio Bauhaus), creating licensed/generic character designs, icons, background material, et al.
A full-time image retoucher at ONE20 Photographic Studios in Port Melbourne.
Currently work full-time for Mitch Dowd Design (Mistiyarn Pty Ltd) in licensed men's apparel as graphic designer.
