Rhys grew up in a small town where he found his passion for storytelling when he was gifted a well-loved version of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. It wasn't long before he was drawing and writing his own stories, designing maps, monsters and heroes, and taking his friends on adventures with table-top role-playing games.
Entering the comic industry in 1999, Rhys began working on Marvel’s Deadpool, and has since been involved with ThunderCats, G.I. Joe, Battle of the Planets, Vampirella, Robotech, and a number of exciting titles. His journey has taken him into the television/film, animation and video game industries – notably to work on The Secret World, FarCry 5, the television series The Expanse, V-Wars, Polar, Titans, and designing the look of the new Nickelodeon series Blue’s Clues and You.
"Blue's Clues and You" was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Preschool Children's Series and Outstanding Interactive Media for a Daytime Program.
