Our People

Terry Maughan


Terry worked for several years as a freelance creative for companies nationally such as Granada Studios (ITV), and locally-based community projects, prior to returning to his roots at Arts University Plymouth in 2013. During this time he achieved his Masters Degree in Publishing with Illustration, where he focused on the links between art education as a pathway to the publishing industry through an independent process. He works in the games industry with several companies creating content for games such as Dungeons & Dragons and other tabletop titles, as well as working on independent comic books in various forms from art, scripting and lettering.

Currently, Terry is committed to providing students with a good foundation in practical drawing skills, with an impetus on unlocking and realising their own creativity as the industry's new content providers.

The main focus of Terry's teaching practice within BA (Hons) Animation & Games has been to provide students with skills linked to context of practice, and how theory and industry all relate to the student's own development as a creative practitioner within the games industry.

He also specialises in two-dimensional art, character based design, and concept art. Terry looks to develop the student understanding of fundamental drawing techniques through the use of life drawing workshops and dynamic drawing lectures related to composition perspective and use of media, all of which converts to an understanding of techniques used in digital image making for the games industry.

Terry is a research academic, working with academics and artists from across the country from different HE institutions on various art-based research projects. In his spare time, he is the artist in residence at Leadworks Plymouth, where he runs workshops and works on his own arts practice.
