Paul Loudon – Designer

"You name it, I draw it." ...Professional, full-time freelance illustrator.

Overview

Professional, full-time illustrator, with over ten years experience working for a wide variety of clients on all sorts of projects. Illustrations usually take place inside a a shed in Stretford, Manchester. Though I have been known to step outside and work on location.


Essentially I have a comic-book style of art that has been applied to several published books and magazines.


Books: "Alice and the Invaders from Wonderland" (see link in portfolio). Other books (covers and interiors) include "Commercial Acting in LA", "The Forgotten Film Club" (36 portraits of British comedian Mel Smith) and The "Dangerous Games" (books for schools series). Recently I have worked with Dr Peter Harrop on Routledge's "Mummer's Plays Revisited", helping to envision folk play performances which often have little visual documentation.


Magazines: I have illustrated 6 covers for Starburst Magazine and one poster pullout. The last cover I created for them was the most recent #484 "Toxie Turns 40". I have also been known to design and format the interior layouts.


My proudest moment was creating the illustrations for "Mr. Alzheimer's goes to Toyland" for Age Uk Salford. It is a book which raises awareness of the disease among school children and spreads a positive message. The book launch in particular was very emotional.

Self-employed

Apr, 2006 — Present

My comic-book style of art has been applied to numerous projects, including an interactive game for Manchester United, currently situated in the museum at Old Trafford and more recently BBC Sport. Like most projects these began in traditional media and ended up digital ( I am fluent in Photoshop in particular, but also a dab hand in Illustrator). Most work too numerous to into involves typography, colour schemes, sketches, layouts, liaising with clients. ...Other recent clients include Huawei (Storyboards via Moving Picture Company), Age UK Salford (Children's book about Alzheimer's) and the Ealing Club (London).

My portfolio below is a mixture of cover and interior book illustrations carried out over the years.
