I am an Artist/Illustrator/Animator. After obtaining my degree in Graphic Design/illustration in 1995 I was approached and taken on by an agent. I was then published in the hardback, internationally distributed 'The Art Book' I then spent 2 years producing illustration to brief for a wide international client base, Including, BOCC,IBM, american opera house,redrow homes, Penguin,Harper collins,and various gaming companies. I am an experienced and creatively versatile illustrator living in, and working from, my base in Manchester, UK, I have a track record spanning decades using both digital and traditional techniques. Nowadays, along with the advent of technological advances, I tend to work digitally more often than not. But my style does involve a lot of old fashioned drawing on paper! My work is predominately figurative and I tend towards humorous imagery occasionally satirical in nature, I would describe my base style as unique, honest, quirky and slightly eccentric. It is an accumulation of a vast research base and thousands of artists that I admire. Being a sensitive person, an artist is like a sponge, easily influenced by everything wonderful and not so wonderful in our world. I am no exception. I decided to remain true to my own language, whilst searching for a modern simple style that could potentially be used across multiple platforms. I am extremely responsive to new approaches and ideas your project may require, I offer a unique, professional service. I am equally at home producing work for editorial publications, advertising, and book publications including children's books, and food illustrations for packaging. I also produce storyboard visuals, caricatures, cartoons and concept/character designs. I work for advertising too, whether it be a character based concept, or a speciality of mine, an anthropomorphic concept/character design. I always have a number of ongoing self-initiated projects, in between commissions. At the present time I am redesigning ‘A Rake's Progress' by the 18th century painter William Hogarth.
