This is a collection of dinosaur character sketches I originally started putting together for a project that fell through. I had fun drawing the characters up so decided to use them to make up part of one of my drawing tutorials/books.

The Monstrous Match is a children's book I wrote and illustrated. The rhyming picture book is about a fictional football tournament, played by teams of monsters. A cute, colourful and silly book, it was written for ages 4-8 and is filled with all sorts of weird and wacky monsters..

For the second book in the Anisha's Adventures series I illustrated 16 full colour double page spreads. The book is a departure from the first in the series in that it has a wider appeal. Rather than being primarily targeted at girls, Anisha's Adventures in the Prehistoric will appeal equally to boys. Adventure, dinosaurs and magic... always a lot of fun to work on. .

Jenny is the tale of an eight year old girl who has a secret… she is not an average eight year old. In fact, Jenny is a Werewolf hunting eight year old… While staring out of the window one night, Little Jenny got the most awful fright she was sure that she saw, from the corner of her eye a great big hairy, scary guy. With claws and fangs, and eyes that glowed red It could be a vampire, or maybe one of the un-dead? The Tiny Twisted Tales are a collection of short stories and poems from the rather strange mind of Calvin Innes. Each Tiny Twisted Tale is about another weird, scary, wonderfully gruesome character, from people who eat bugs, to tiny toga-wearing goblins. Each book is packed with dozens of Calvin s quirky illustrations. Each tiny twisted tale has a moral of sorts, tightly wrapped in a twisted and creepy (and funny) tale.

This is one of several Wasgij puzzles I've illustrated. Each Wasgij project consists of two illustrations, one for the box and one for the puzzle itself. Only the box image is made public, while the solution can only be seen by those completing the puzzle. In 2014 I was asked to illustrate the new Wasgij Jr range.

A digital commission (black and white version) to be used for a series of prints, and on a few pieces of merchandise. Very simply, the client wanted an illustration with skulls and a bird, with the bird somehow trapped and unable to fly. If you look closely the birds legs are entwined with vines..

About Me:
I’m an illustrator, designer, artist, cartoonist, published author and experienced marketing consultant.

I’ve been fortunate to have worked with more clients that I can remember, from large well known brands to individuals and small businesses. My illustrations and designs can be seen on TV, in books, in comics, online and on the shelves of toy stores up and down the UK and all over the world.

My past clients include: Sony, Cadbury’s, RSPB, Nestle, Halfords, London Zoo, Dr Who Magazine, The Smurfs, Jumbo Games, Fareshare, JCB, Sea Life Centre and Scholastic. I am an official artist for Wasgij Puzzles, the best selling puzzle brand in the world and I continue to be a regular contributor to books and magazines across a range of genres.

I’ve been drawing for as long as I can...
