I and others would describe me as tactful, creative, driven, and detail oriented. When I get a task I put all my energy into doing the best that I can do. I have no problem with asking for help when I need it. Time management is a good skill of mine. I have been drawing and doing computer graphics for over 5 years now. I am currently pursuing a College Degree to support my resume. In my current position I have been responsible for designing and creating many office materials. I have created job aids, spreadsheets, and emails. My specialty though is logo and picture design for different activities and events.

Educated at the Savannah College of Art and Design with an MFA in Illustration. I also have a BFA in Drawing from Shawnee State University in Ohio. In traditional media I'm proficient in pen and ink, but I can also do watercolor. In digital media I can mimic watercolor techniques, flat color, cell shading or full shading. I prefer to color digitally and ink traditionally for conceptual and comic book art. I love book illustrations and cover art projects. My genre is fantasy art. My favorite subjects are figures and animals/creatures. I love conceptual design.

My name is Simon Wilson and I am a freelance Portrait Artist / Graphic Designer. Born in 1969 in a lovely town called Bournemouth which is located on the South Coast of Dorset England. I studied at Bournemouth and Poole College and gained many of my skills from there, however I have always had a passion for art from a very early age. Initially I started out doing logos and graphic design websites etc , now I do more portraits full time rather than logos or anything else. I have a large young family so working from home fits in around my four young children's hectic lifestyle. I am freelance and very fortunate to be doing something I love to do. Painting portraits of People or Pets brings out the best of me I tend to lose myself in my work, I have a great attention to detail and make every portrait I paint a unique painting and a very special piece of art for my clients, Commissioning me to paint your loved one or pet is a statement of my talent being noticed and I guarantee I will give 150% to make you happy with the finished painting. My goal is to fulfil people's lives with a joy that my paintings bring to their life and to bring memories that will last a lifetime and can be handed down to future generations.

From 1986 to Present: Freelance visual artist. conceptor. Comics, cartoons and Kids book series co-writer, Designer, illustrator. Also, enthusiastic Fedora wearer custom-made from Oregon and Master trouble escapist with style. Has-been hardcore traveler. Red wine and Kentucky Mash Bourbon fan. Comic books and superheros obsessed and, finally, a passion for the Sport of archery. ...oh, I’m also one mean cooker. Everybody always comes back for a Second plate. What I do when i’m not doing what i usually do: I illustrate comic book projects. Lay-outs. Inking, coloring on computer. ( photoshop only ). I’m Working part times on other series and on my second series of kids books. My first series was: patatepilée. The series had 4 books published and also won an award for the second Best book of the year at the: Salon du livre Saguenay, Lac-Saint-Jean. I was working on this Series with Michel Bouchard as scriptor/writer of the stories. Accomplishments: At some time, for 26 years, ( or maybe a little more...), I was the Co-creator, co-founder and co-owner of Safarir Magazine. The idea was started in1986 with my friend and associate Sylvain Bolduc. Then, the FIRST issue of Safarir was launched in October 1987. The magazine started to become a huge success around early 1991 until 2001-2002 when internet began to started to hit hard the magazines / print medias industries. I got rid of Safarir in 2010 since it Was not making a mint anymore but remained Freelance for the magazine until 2014, or so, the leaved. But, I’m still a Freelancer. Never stopped to this day. Also, as mentionned earlier, Had my first kids books series published in 2010. I also was illustrator for some school And education books in the 1990s. In 2006-2007, I have Been working on 2 of my series that were published in the magazine safarir to become 2 TV series in 3-D animation with TV producer Yves St-Gelais, already very well-known for his series “LaFlaque”, at Radio-Canada. Unfortunately, it never happened. Skills Used: I’m very old school, but, don’t let that judge me negatively. I can’t yet draw on tablet very well, But in revenge, when it comes for coloring, i picked-it-up fast and can paint on this thing like When I was painting on canvas, Old-Style Eons ago. I use Photoshop, as updated as possible, for the colors side, but, i also even can draw directly, to some extent, and depending on what. To draw, I use the papers-and-pencils, Paintbrushes and other inking methods on the good old Drawing table. It’s hard to talk, describe all the skills you have and uses. Let’s just say that Maybe my portfolio will attest to all this and answer you.
