Mr Martin Morris


I am an animator, draughtsman and educator who focuses on drawing and approaches to drawing as a way of developing creative insight within education and industry. I have worked in the animation sector for several years and my primary interests lay in drawing, the history and processes inherent to drawing and how it can be used to ignite creative insight in individuals and groups. I have taught and continue to teach at various Universities and institutions including the Royal College of Art and National Film and Television School expanding on the role and use of drawing within moving image practice. 

Alongside this I work within in the creative industries developing and delivering bespoke and original workshops based around unpacking the creative process. I help companies develop creative insight allowing them to develop their own unique creative voice. I work internationally with global creative agency Ogilvy & Mather putting this research, developed within education, into practice.

Teaching and learning

Undergraduate courses taught


My research is in drawing in relation to creative insight and visual development. How historical understand and approaches to drawing can be used to place its practice in a contemporary light. I have been developing these ideas for several years within education and since 2010 I have been working closely with creative agency Ogilvy & Mather, using drawing as a foundation of creative insight, designing workshops based around unpacking the creative process for the benefit of their employees, their business and industry as a whole. The approaches and results have been applied for the benefit of both contemporary education and business needs.
