About me
Hello, I am Edmund Athelstan Pollington. graduate from the University of Essex in Southend studying Graphic Design. It has been a life-long dream and ambition of my mine to be an illustrator; as a kid from Basildon, I have always loved drawing. I would draw all the things that captivated the imagination of most kids. From dinosaurs, comic book characters and real-life inspirational people. I am an artist at heart, and I love to create and tell stories in my work. Now that my work is here, I hope to entice you - the kind viewer, and from this point on I will strive to make that dream a reality. I hope you like what you see here, I have an Instagram that you may use in addition to my work here. Happy viewing. email: edmundpollington@gmail.com Instagram: Artist.Athelstan
