Overview

I’m a freelance illustrator with 25 years experience working for many major UK newspapers and magazines, design and ad agencies, and I’ve designed over 200 greetings cards.
Since 2004 I've work regularly for the BBC's Doctor Who range, illustrating for their two magazines and, more recently, illustrating their books. 'Whographica', a hardback book of Doctor Who infographics, which I designed as well as illustrated, was published in September 2016. And 'Doctor Who: Paper Dolls' was released in September 2017
