Overview

I am an experienced freelance illustrator, my style is heavily based on drawing with various implements and taking this drawing on a journey into a computer and back out the other side. I find this is the most flexible approach, i also enjoy playing around with collage and photo montage to inform my drawings. I thrive working with all types of clients, most of my work has been editorial but i am looking to produce more work for the publishing markets.
