Verne grew up during the dawn of the
television era with its wacky worlds of Beatlemania and Bugs
Bunny. 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.
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
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, IKEA.
Today Verne is
using his advanced skills on the release of his Captain Cannabis
comic book and film series. Combined with current relaxation of
cannabis attitudes, it is destined to become Verne's Ultimate Hit!
