After graduation, Allen spent 10 years as an in-house illustrator at Skidmore Studio where he was able to cross genres and work for a bevy of top global clients.

During his career Guy has been called: gentleman, illustrator, designer, animator, director, editor, comedian, toy designer, partner, creative and teacher. His first graphic novel, an adaptation of Karl Schroeder’s sci-fi masterpiece VIRGA: Sun of Suns, has been released through Blind Ferret Entertainment.
