About me
After spending a year developing my illustration brand Ruthdraws, I’m feeling even more excited now to continue my journey as a freelance illustrator. My style is fun, carefree and full of attitude, everything I create reflects myself and my experiences. I thrive on making people laugh and enjoy the little things in life, (i.e funny little cards). In 2021 I hope to gain more experience in editorial illustration after being commissioned by Aspex Gallery and The Pontoon Project to create their new websites landing page illustration.
