This site has been re-launched to focus on my illustration work, games and animation of personal and a commercial nature. Of course, I have not added every single project to website, otherwise there would be no surprises in life! if you like surprises please follow me on twitter (shameless plug... and very, very cheesy ) or read my blog. I like think that i'm not just selling my art; I'm selling my skills, experience... and craft.

I have been drawing for as long as I can remember I have doodled monsters! I have sold prints, worked on commissions, worked with private clients, animations, games, conceptualization, characters, cartoons, websites, brands, small publications and many more. I can use a mixed range of media to achieve different results, but stylistically my artwork is the same.

Historical : detailed illustration work depicting the harder times in history. I have drawn historical battle scenes, markets, dungeons, cottages for publication.
Colour renderings in photoshop : Full painterly renders. (please email for more information)

Brainstorming : conceptual thinking and working in small teams
