Artist Name

In 2014 I was commissioned by a local musician and friend to illustrate all musicians involved in a charity gig that he organised! That was 14 people's portraits in total, which made it possibly the biggest commission I've ever done! The portraits were each put on the bands' individual posters, which were created and printed by another graphic designer.

Profile

Hello there. I'm an artist from Bushey, Hertfordshire, UK, who creates Pop-Fantasy artwork for exhibitions and also for illustration commissions. Using ink pens, watercolours and Photoshop as chosen mediums, my artwork centres on character design. I've always had a passion for the weird, wonderful and the psychedelic. In particular the 1960's hippy image and the absurdities of Pop Culture. I love to use colour to express emotion, and each of my little folks has their own tale to tell. And their dream-world surroundings are sometimes taken from observation studies, and sometimes they are completely from my imagination. With a BA Honours Degree in Illustration and Animation, over the past 10 years I have built up a substantial portfolio of previous projects including book illustrations, murals and personal requested commissions. Check out my website and you can also find me on Facebook.
