Career Illustrator Manchester
I am a freelance illustrator working primarily in the field of comics and children's books. Recent clients include ITV Saturday Night Takeaway and BBC Bitesize.
I studied design communications at The North East Wales Institute where I specialised in illustration and graphic design. Since then, I have been plying my trade as an illustrator whilst balancing a career at the Care Quality Commission where I focus on adult social care policy.
Comic book related clients include BBC Bitesize, 2000 AD/Rebellion, DC Comics, Vertigo Comics, Rok Comics, Strip Magazine UK and ILEX Press. Children's book publishers I've been commissioned by include: American Girl / Mattel, Benchmark Education, Franklin Watts, Hachette UK, McGraw-Hill, Raintree Publishing, Rising Stars, Usborne Books, Wayland Books. Editorial work includes New Internationalist magazine and DeAgostini publishing.
I also do work on a freelance basis for the creative sector on such things as storyboards, concept design and other visuals.
I work out of OpenSpace, a members' run co-operative office space located in Manchester, UK. OpenSpace run an affordable, attractive office where different members and tenants carry out a variety of creative and socially conscious work - but don't let that put you off from hiring me!
