I am a illustrator, graphic designer  and sometime animator.

 

I mainly specialise in the two areas of bold, utilitarian graphic design, and varied, often quirky illustrative work . I also on occasion do the odd animation here and there.

 

Hire me if you want original, quality artwork that goes the extra mile while always respecting the brief.
