I am an experienced and creatively versatile illustrator living in and working from my base in Manchester, UK. I have a track record spanning decades, using both digital and traditional techniques. Nowadays, along with the advent of technological advances, I tend to work digitally more often than not. I am fully conversant in the latest technology, including the Adobe suite, especially Photoshop and Illustrator. I am also skilled in Corel Painter 12 and Z, Brush, 3D modelling software. However, my style still involves a lot of old fashioned drawing on paper! My work is predominantly figurative and I tend towards humourous imagery, occasionally satirical in nature. I would describe my base style as unique, honest, quirky and slightly eccentric.. It is an accumulation of a vast research base and thousands of artists that I admire. Being a sensitive person, an artist is like a sponge, easily influenced by everything wonderful and not so wonderful in our world. I am no exception. I decided to remain true to my own language, whilst searching for a modern, simple style that could potentially be used across multiple platforms. I am extremely responsive to new approaches and ideas your project may require. I offer a unique, professional service. I am equally at home producing work for editorial publications, advertising and book publications, including children's books and food illustrations for packaging. I also produce storyboard visuals, caricatures, cartoons and concept/character designs. I also produce work for advertising whether it be a character based concept, or a speciality of mine, an anthropomorphic concept/character design. I always have a number of ongoing self initiated projects, in between commissions. At the present time I am redesigning ‘A Rakes Progress” by the 18th century painter William Hogarth.
