A painterly touch...
I am constantly inspired by portraitures and love to put a pop culture spin on them.
I've worked with all sorts of software and gadgets; Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, Wacom drawing tablets, clever monitor displays and touchscreen laptops that work with a stylus.
Currently I am in love with Procreate on my iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil stylus; not only because it gives me realistic gouache and oil painting brushes, but the app also allows me to make speed painting videos to show off my process. Fun fact: the Timothy Dalton speed painting to the right is the culmination of approximately 17 hours and 51 minutes of painting time, sped up to a bitesize 30 seconds!
I always aim to bring a painterly quality to my illustrations, and I am big on colour. I love to make bold, beautiful pieces that look striking both in print and on the web. This type of artwork is suited for magazines, album covers, book and DVD covers, posters, you name it! I'm eager to take on commissions, either for personal or business use, so please do get in touch if you would like to discuss a project.
This page is a selection of my favourites - personal pieces that I've made just for fun. They often reflect my interests; you'll see a lot of television, film and music faces here!
