I have enjoyed illustrating stories, people and animals since I was a boy of three years old and copied the illustrations of Beatrix Potter books and ‘Animals of Farthing Wood’. My work nowadays consists predominately of helping to brand new companies with logos, and illustrations. I enjoy working with clients and being part of a team to work out concepts and a visual direction of a new product or company. I have had some exciting projects illustrating; packaging, fabric, T-shirts, books, greetings cards, to name a few.
I would love to have the chance to illustrate for a textile company, applying my detailed pen & ink work to prints for fabric. I would also love to further my study in traditional printmaking techniques and take an apprenticeship in Japanese woodblock printing. Eventually I would like to own my own shop with a team of printmakers, and maybe publish my own book of illustrated tales. hopefully for me this is will be my job and my hobby, and I like to keep busy!
