I am a Cornwall based freelance illustrator and graphic designer with over 20 years experience in the creative industry, working for a wide range of lovely clients worldwide.. For as long as I can remember I have been finding ways to communicate visually. My passion for creativity is nearly matched by my enthusiasm for collaboration
I have provided illustrations for many of the UK's leading advertising, publishing, magazine and design companies on anything from seasonal campaigns to simple space fillers. I have also provided illustrations for many local businesses in the South West
I make a living by drawing stuff, colouring in, creating things and generally solving things for all kinds of clients in visual ways...whilst drinking too much coffee.
Illustration is not just one of my services, it's not even work! It's my favourite hobby! I have been drawing ever since I can remember, and now have over 20 years of professional experience as an illustrator in St Austell, Cornwall.
I aim to visually problem solve and create something unique for you, whether that's a one-off illustration or a range of designs. I can assist you with a project from initial concept to final production. I start by supplying initial concepts for approval then discuss with you how I plan to tackle the project to best fulfil the brief.
It's helpful to have some sort of brief from you so I can quote your job more accurately, including things like usage, size, deadlines, company information and any other details you wish to give me. Once I have all the relevant information and we've agreed a price, I'll lovingly come up with some ideas for you. I always make sure that good communication is upheld and that my work is to a high standard. My work includes book covers, design for print, magazine illustration, illustrated logos and branding, packaging, character development and much more. You can see a selection of my work in my portfolio.
I provide all sorts of creative and professional Illustrations in Cornwall including digital illustration, Children’s Book llustration and Cartoon Character Design. Large businesses or small, or even individuals, I put the same love and time into creating each artwork.
I work digitally from my studio based in sunny Cornwall. All my illustrations are fully editable vectors and can be supplied as .ai .eps or pdf's. In addition to my illustration work I run a busy design studio (www.rocketpixels.co.uk)
