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 remember and have been fortunate enough to do this for a living for around 15 years. I paint, I draw, I work in both traditional and digital mediums and I work in a number of styles, from cute and silly children’s illustrations to dark, graphic acrylic work on canvas. I have created thousands of illustrations over the years for all sorts of projects from children’s books, toys and games, animations, and merchandise to advertising and film/video… plus a little of everything else in between.
I specialize in cartoon and comic book illustration and have worked with a number of major children's brands consistently for 15 years. My games, books, t-shirts and other bits and pieces have sold in the hundreds of thousands around the world. My work has been published in over 30 books as well as several magazines, journals and newspapers.
I also regularly create canvases and original artwork for exhibitions and collectors around the UK. I also founded and run Drunk Animal Design and Marketing, an advertising and design agency that runs out of Yorkshire in the UK. We work with clients around the world to deliver creative marketing campaigns as well as high quality design solutions.
