Verne grew up during the dawn of the
television era with its wacky worlds of Beatlemania, Bugs Bunny
and the Fabulous Furry Freak Bros.
While he dabbled in
music and drawing, it wasn't until he met the crew from Captain
Canuck Comics at a high school "career day" that he found his
calling. He quickly became the studio pest, dropping by weekly to
show off his latest. During this period he created the "Captain
Cannabis" character and comic book, the first of many to come.
His career took off with his first paid job - cel painting on
"Blowhard," a National Film Board animated short, followed by
animation assignments for Hanna Barbera's Saturday morning
line-up. He continued in comics illustrating stories for
Phantacea, doing ink and colour on Captain Canuck, cover art for
Charleton and inking for Marvel.
Working on Nelvana's "Rock
& Rule" animated feature Verne bridged old with new - on the one
hand he was privileged to work alongside masters Frank Thomas and
Ollie Johnson, two of Walt Disney's 9 wise men, while at the same
time he was designing leading-edge computer-controlled visual
effects with Industrial Light and Magic.
Verne then turned
his focus to advertising and marketing in Toronto and Vancouver.
He provided the creative behind a number of high-tech success
stories including 'Simply Accounting,' one of the best selling
small business accounting brands, and the successful Pigtronix
musical instrument effects. As CEO of Virtual Access he produced a
range of content for web and broadcast, including the highly
successful "Kid's Club" TV spots for Swedish furniture retailer,
Today Verne is focusing his advanced skills on the
release of his Captain Cannabis comic book and film series that
are destined to become his Ultimate Hit!
