So i draw and stuff.
Here's what I do
I’ve illustrated full colour picture books, comics, book covers and games. I love blending art and storytelling and am especially passionate about creating art for publishing. If you’ve got a book that needs artwork, let me know! I’m always looking for new stories to contribute to.
What can I say? I like drawing faces. There’s a special kind of challenge to capturing not just a face, but an expression, a personality on a page. People, pets, aliens, if you’ve got an interesting face you’d like to see painted let me know.
One-off pieces, typically oil on canvas – though I do dabble in sculpture and a few different types of media.
Here’s a mini gallery of past work. Check out my portfolio page for more!
HOW I DO THE DO
Pencil, pastel & charcoal
From rough and sketchy to cleanly finished pieces. Charcoal pencil is particularly great for bold, high-contrast pieces that need to be expressive and visually striking.
Ink & Watercolour
Perfect for storybook-style images, and a lot of fun to work with. Working with textured paper and splashes of colour lends a softer, wamer feel to the finished images.
Since 2005 I’ve used the Adobe suite of creative programs to create vector illustrations, paintings, cartoons, as well as editing and augmenting non-digital pieces. Working digitally allows for great flexibility in design and editing, fine control of detail and smooth, rich colours.
Oils are my favourite medium for playing with bright, bold colours and expressive brushwork. Brilliant for big fine art pieces and portraits.
