I illustrate in a wide range of styles. I vary my style to suit the subject, project and output medium. I illustrate for web, print, screen and projection or gravure onto other materials.
I can create animated images and I work closely with a motion graphics artist to produce animated projects in all formats.
I also work with a team, building interactive books as apps.
I also specialise in character development, both written and drawn.
If you have a project that requires this, please contact me to discuss and, of course, obtain a price quotation.
