About me
I am a character designer and illustrator specializing in creating original work to easily transfer your ideas into visuals. I will bring my flexible approach and ability to give you options for you to give feedback. Our journey will see me using traditional drawing, digital painting, illustrations, quick sketches and my communication skills to update you from concept to completion. I am easy to work with and I adapt well to any changes in the design brief. My experience in character design allows me to develop ideas quickly and effectively giving you memorable illustrations for your audience to enjoy.
  • Attitude
    AttitudeI gave myself a project around a motivational phrase that I wrote about attitude. I wanted a powerful yet playful image of a boy in a stance that was strong and identifiable. The illustration started life as a cartoon in the first concept image below this final render. I liked the cartoon version so much that I developed the character for my own brand of t.shirts for my company Yonderviu. I also designed the lettering.
  • Brasil
    BrasilI am very happy with how this project turned out because I was asked to illustrate my experience whilst on holiday to Brazil in 2015. The image of children playing with kites on the rooftops was a great way of seeing another culture as beautiful and interactive as this. I incorporated the images that inspired me all in one image. This started as a freehand drawing then the final render was done in Photoshop. The project took 2 months from concept to completion.
  • Boy King
    Boy KingThis was for a project that I wanted for my own t.shirt company. I finally used it for t.shirts and business leaflets that I had printed providing my services.
