I am an Essex (UK) born arty-farty bloke with a passion for anything creative. I am inspired by my surroundings and take reference from my everyday life. Having lived in some fantastic locations around the British Isles, I now reside just outside of the walls of Chester (Cheshire) and work as an illustrator from the comfort of my kitchen. Having gained some commercial experience with a CV that boasts the likes of Heathrow Airport, Sony, Pizza Hut and Toni & Guy and having collected a BA (Hons) Degree along the way, I love to get my teeth into a project and create stunning visuals for work and pleasure.

Art of Misfortune was founded by DS Haviland and will be launching this Fall on Kickstarter.com. I am in search of a digital artist to help me bring to life my vision for a tabletop board game. Ideally I'm looking to hire an individual for approximately 50 small 3x5inch cards and a few larger more elaborate pieces. For the majority of the project I'm willing to pay per piece rather than an hourly rate.

I am a traditional artist that specializes in combining ink work with watercolor and acrylics. Oils are a valuable notch in my repertoire as well. I tend to use bright and vivid coloring but my styles vary as needed for the feel of a project. If projects require a digital representation, I create the work traditionally, scan it, then edit. An example of this technique would be my logo designs. Many of my works are on display and available at Freedom Pharmacy on main street, Loganville, Ga.
