Description:
Since leaving Art College in 2006 I have been freelancing as a cartoonist and caricaturist, working on projects ranging from caricature commissions for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and retirement, to stock illustration, character design, humorous greeting card designs and book illustration. My work has a strong emphasis on humour, as in the case of the greeting card designs, not only do I design them, I also write the copy to go with them.

My work is rendered digitally with the aid of a Wacom Intuos tablet and stylus used in conjunction with Corel Painter and Adobe Photoshop. This makes completion of a brief more expedient as there is no need for scanning and printing, once the brief is finished it is also ready to be dispatched either through email or F.T.P and can be printed out in a variety of sizes.

Even though I work digitally, my style has the traditional appearance of pen and ink or line and wash. As I am extremely competent with the Corel Painter programme, I can render the finished product in any media preferred.

My main influences are the satirists Ralph Steadman, Gerald Scarfe and James Gilray as well as the low brow artists, Todd Schorr and Robert Williams and the surrealist painter René Magritte.

I always keep my clients fully informed on the progress of work undertaken by sending rough samples as the work progresses, and I never start to finalise a brief until the client is fully satisfied.

I hope you decide to engage my services, and I sincerely look forward to working with you now or in the future.
