Work history


Freelance Illustrator

Tom Barton Illustration

Jul 2015
  • I apply myself to a moderately wide range of jobs using my art style and expertise. I've done character design/art for board games, illustrated assets to be used in a music video and also produced a web banner of well known movie and tv characters for a review/news website.


Website Banner Illustrator


Feb 2016 - Feb 2016
  • I received an urgent commission very last minute from a branding company relating to a movie review website launch. Their previous artist had backed out and taken some of their budget with them, but they liked my stuff and I created them what they needed for the client within 2 days (despite already having other work). I created a very wide image containing 11 recognizable characters from film and tv.


Animation Asset Designer


Jan 2016 - Feb 2016
  • I was commissioned by a Bristol Based musician to illustrate assets to be used in animated music video he wanted to create. I was given a story board to follow and simply had to recreate the scenes in my style as well as planning and working out how the assets would interact during the animating process.


Character Illustrator & Comic Illustrator


Dec 2015 - Jan 2016
  • I was commissioned to illustrate races/characters for a board game that used miniatures (similar to warhammer) that was still in development. I brought the characters and classes to life using my art style. I also did a comic page that illustrated the fighting style of one type of character against another that utilized hammers being strategically smashed into the ground to stamp runes onto the floor during combat.


Cartoon Illustrator

Persian Cat Rescue

Feb 2013 - Aug 2014
  • I was tasked with turning the pet of one of the owners of a cat charity into a cartoon character which would then be used in a book. It was originally an online competition I'd found and that I won the chance to work on. Unfortunately it never went further than the development stage because of financial issues.



Illustration and Animation

Coventry University

Aug 2011 - Jun 2015
  • Illustration, specifically comic and character design.
