Where did you train, and what did you specialise in?

I studied Illustration at UWE Bristol. 

What are your favourite tools?

My lightbox and computer. 

What techniques do you use the most?

I mainly use a lightbox or tracing paper to draw shapes from the linework in my initial drawings, because this allows me to edit them. I also prefer the quality of a hand-drawn line to a digital one. 

What’s your favourite piece you’ve created?

This is usually my most recent, but if I had to pick one I’d say The Bottom Of The Light. I think the colours work well and I love drawing interesting objects.

What kinds of materials do you work with?

I like to use traditional materials such as pencils, fine liner and brush pens, and any textures I can scan in. 

The Bottom Of The Light


The Bottom Of The Light is based on Gabriel García Márquez‘s short story, Light is Like Water
