about copy.png

I've been a UK-based illustrator for over thirty years now. For the first part of my career my work was made entirely with ink, paint, paper and collage in a very traditional way - and posted to the client in a very traditional way! Some of the work I was making then can be seen in the 'archive' section.

Using an Apple Mac to scan and send artwork to clients as the internet and email became practical and accessible inevitably lead to a transition to digital. Even though finished artwork is digital I always start with pen, ink and paper, only later is it worked up in Photoshop.​ In this digital age I believe it's important not to miss out on the enjoyment of real ink, paint and brush work and getting my hands dirty.

During this time I've worked for hundreds of magazines, book publishers, newspapers and advertising campaigns, some of which include: Arena, The BBC, British Airways, Comic Relief, Cosmopolitan, Country Life, The Daily Telegraph, Easyjet, The English Symphony Orchestra, The Field, The Financial Times, FHM, The Guardian, HSJ, Honda (UK), Horse and Hound, Investors Chronicle, Manchester United, Money Observer, Mojo, The National Railway Museum, .Net magazine, The New Vic Theatre, Northern Broadsides Theatre Company, Oxford University Press, Punch, Prospect, Pan Macmillan, The Royal Mint, The Royal Shakespeare Company, RSPB, Swallow Hotels, The Swiss Embassy, TES magazine, Time magazine, The Word magazine and Wild Turkey Whiskey.
