Tom Brown is a British; Brooklyn based Director, Designer, and Illustrator, who works closely with his animation wife Daniel Gray under the name of Holbrooks. Their work is a Trojan horse of aesthetic beauty and visual stimulation that draws the audience into the obscure and imagined world of their narratives. Ranging from the banal and honest to the erotic and disturbing, Tom’s illustration and writing is personal and self-referential, drawing on the wealth of his real life experiences as an outsider and loner in New York. His films have been exhibited at over 100 international film and animation festivals; winning prizes at Sundance, SXSW, Annecy International Animation Festival, NY Shorts Fest, Amsterdam Film Festival, Ottawa, and more. Holbrooks is represented by Blacklist in New York, where Tom now works in-house. His commercial work includes commissions for Red Cross, Coca-Cola, Google, Nike, UNICEF, Rdio, and Sesame Street.
