My name is Michael Tailford I do a lot of traditional painting with acrylics and gouache depending on how I want the outcome to look and how quickly the image is needed. Traditional painting is not my sole skill I do have experiences with digital illustration I have also been taught how to use Adobe Photoshop and In Design
I like a studio environment where I can interact with others and exchange ideas that can really help me get the wheels rolling on a project. That does not mean I consider my chosen profession a nine to five job.
Illustration is always on my mind and I am often sketching down ideas in a sketch book that I will usually adapt to a larger painting.
