Andy Catling

Andy Catling - Designer

Brighton, United Kingdom

UK based international illustrator of children's books.

Overview

My name is Andy Catling (BA hons) and I am a professional illustrator with more than 50 illustrated titles under my belt. I work in traditional mediums and digital wot-nots to make artwork for book illustration, editorial projects, websites and advertising. I have worked for many different publishing houses such as Usborne, Oxford University Press, Little Tiger press, Parragon, QED, Franklin Watts and many others.

In a typical book illustration project I will design characters, story scenes and generally visualise the words of a story to work with and around the text on a page. With many projects I have designed the cover and internal pages before illustrating. I do this with a view to creating a harmony and flow with text and image.

In past employments I have also produced storyboards and 3D modelling and animation as well as 2D animation for video game publishers such as Microsoft.
