Tommy Hardman – Designer

Children's illustrator specialising in Publishing. My style is empathetic & inspired by nature.


I’m an illustrator living and working in Brighton, UK.

My art is empathetic and soft in style, inspired by nature and adventure. My ability to lose myself in the authors’ writing always results in a beautiful series of illustrations to bring the story to life. Collaboration and open communication provides the author with strong unique artwork.

I’m a freelance illustrator. I’ve worked with Phonics Readers Publishing House, Ty Jaouen Stories and best selling author Harrison Perry to name a few.

Work experience


May, 2018 — Present

I primarily work across publishing & editorial. I have worked with children's book publishers to illustrate board books and picture books. I've also worked with numerous magazines, creating spot illustrations and full page work. I really enjoy illustrating around health & wellness and bringing an aspect of nature into my work.
