Greg Holfeld

Greg Holfeld began his career in his native Canada, working up the ladder on various television animation projects in studios from Vancouver to Montreal. A crazy-brave stab at a Tokyo manga career more than 20 years ago led to animating in London and eventually residing in Adelaide, South Australia.
 
In Australia he continued to work in the animation industry.  He supplied animation for shows such as “Ren and Stimpy” and directed award-winning commercials for noted production houses Anifex, People's Republic of Animation, and Acmefilmworks. His animated short films have screened and pulled awards in numerous international festivals and include “Barflies”, “Get in the Car”, “Love Stinks” and “Sumo Lake”. 
 
Greg began illustrating children's books in 2001 and is now credited with over 30 titles. 
 
He is the co-creator and illustrator of the popular “Captain Congo” children's graphic novel series and the comic "In For The Krill". “An Anzac Tale” is his most recent project.  He continues to enjoy living in Adelaide with his wife and sons.
 
The Literature Centre has Greg’s artwork and process material from The Super Parp-Buster (written by Janeen Brian) and Wolf’s Sunday Dinner (written by Tania Cox) on exhibition both at the Centre and also as Travelling Exhibitions where they were taken to schools.
 
We welcome Greg in-residence at our Centre 10 – 14 March 2014, to work with students at the Centre and at schools. Greg will also be delivering a Professional Learning session for teachers, librarians and any interested adults on Graphic Novels.
