I am an award-winning graphic artist and political cartoonist/caricaturist from Oxford. Aside from my work in cartoons I am also skilled in life drawing, painting and portraits, and have done numerous commissions to specific briefs and styles. I have worked in a broad range of artistic mediums, but my biggest strength is drawing by hand and colouring digitally. I have spent the last two years working as a political cartoonist for the Sun Newspaper under the name "Trumble", where I have done numerous cartoons for Trevor Kavanagh's political column as well as illustrations for the Health and Sports sections. Since leaving The Sun I have gone on to become a blogger for Huffington Post, where I continue to do political cartoons, most recently on the 2012 Presidential Election. My political cartoons have also been used for a grass-roots "Double Your Vote" campaign. I have also done a lot of illustration and portrait commissions. In 2003 I won the Dan Hemingway Prize for Creativity for my self-illustrated graphic novel "Climate-A Cinematic Novel in Three Parts" which went on to be published by the Blake Project (www.climatethenovel.com). I have most recently provided full illustrations to "The Random Book", a 250 page publication by social enterepeneur Talia Leman, published by New York publishing company Simon and Schuster, which is available now. I have since provided artwork for book covers by ISB Global among others. I have also done graphic design and illustration for websites and business cards, most recently for young violinist and composer Jourdan Urbach. In April of 2012, I was an adult speaker at the TEDxYouth@DesMoines conference (available on Youtube) where I discussed my creative process, and I have also begun a civilian blog for the Huffington Post. You can find examples of my work as well as contact details at www.trumbleart.co.uk!

Been doing web design for copmanies since i was about 9 years old. There is NO SUCH THING as an "impossible" website. Just as a heads-up, the directories limited me to 12, but there were MANY more categories i fit in to, all technology-related. Simply ask if i can do something, and the worst case is i tell you "no" and you keep looking, typically i will be able to accomplish your tasks.
