Tony Thorne is a Burnie boy. He is an animator, an illustrator and an artist who learned to draw on the Burnie Bond paper his grandfather would bring home from the mill. In the summers while at art school he would work maintenance shut downs at the mill.
He has illustrated books of Tasmanian aboriginal poetry and worked for magazines such as Australian RollingStone. He has animated on many feature films including several in the Harry Potter series. His art for Last Days of the Mill has been exhibited in both Burnie and Hobart and some of the works are now held in the Burnie Regional Art Gallery collection.
