Service Description

I have been exceedingly privileged to have worked as an illustrator and designer for 17 years. During that time I have gained extensive experience working in a broad variety of media and for a wide range of excellent clients.

I've come from a background of a dyed-in-the-wool painter and draftsman, working primarily in acrylic or pen, ink and wash. But over the last ten years the sheer wealth and diversity of software options has given me the opportunity transfer my drawing skills to digital formats, from billboard illustrations in Illustrator to Children's book characters in 3D.
This has been both a tremendously challenging and an exciting time to be in the business of image creation, but whatever the medium, my simple objective is to have my images explode with life and character.

I've worked on news worthy caricatures, children's illustrations, magazine covers, mobile phone animations, billboard advertisements, jigsaw puzzles and many, many more applications....some really odd things too. ( A life size alien springs to mind!) My work has been utilized by all manner of companies from the BBC to Scholastic to Toyota.

I'm well accustomed to burning the midnight oil, ( which freelancer isn't?) so deadlines pose few problems. I'm always happy to discuss new projects and applications, and I'm always easy to contact.
