About me
I am a freelance Illustrator, graphic novel, and comic crafter, involved in editorial, narrative, and independent publishing, among other things. - I have
a special admiration for atmosphere, language, and narrative in all of its forms - on traditional formats but especially on experimental platforms: From the endless inspiration of literature to the fluidity of sequential narrative - which I explored through alternative comics such as Ponte Berlino (The-Promise.net), Genesis (Stripburger #73) and others. - I am currently involved in an overseas collaboration to illustrate Cameron Robert’s new novella License to Desire - coming out soon. I am working on some colorful contributions to a few anthologies and magazines, and soon I will come back to bring ideas into the world with my collection of folks Illustrators. With the same thrill, I am ravenous for new projects and chances to craft images.
Projects

  • License to Desire by R.K RiddleWork in progress Illustrations for the License to Desire by R.K. Riddle - also known as Cameron Roberts ("Listening to Bethlem"). Soon to be published both as a physical and digital book. The story is like walking into a dark familiar room - everything feels recognized yet disorientating and obscure.

  • #StreetDraw24 - fundraising arts platform for the street homelessIn 2018 I created Streetdraw24 with the thought of using something I'm good at to do something good. StreetDraw24 is a simple idea - draw from the streets where you live during a 24-hour period then use what's created to raise funds for a local cause. So far we've raised c. 4k for local homelessness charity St Petrocs and created beautiful works that have been exhibited locally.
