More British Museum drawings
One of the animators at work said that drawing statues helped to design characters in three dimensions, so I went to the British Museum. This statue was a bit gnarly, but it did have a comfy bench right in front of it, so I could sit down and drawn (lazy!)
I graduated from Loughborough University with a BA in Illustration in 2004. Since then I have worked in animation, television, illustration, education and marketing in a variety of creative roles.
I'm currently based in Coventry employed as a freelance illustrator.
My illustration style is clean and versatile and has been used in a variety of mediums from children's art shows to podcasts. I combine Photoshop with pencil and ink sketches, photography and found textures to suit the nature of the commission. I am inspired by my love of travel and you can often find textures and patterns collected from around the world in my work.
