THE ULTIMATE SOURCE FOR CREATIVE TALENT

Better known simply as ‘Wing’ amongst friends and colleagues thanks to a nickname that’s stuck ever since my school days, I have been happily building a career as a freelance Illustrator and Designer for over 12 years.

Working from my home studio near Bristol, UK, I have come to specialise in traditional brush, pen, ink and vector style illustration (often combining hand-drawn with digital) and have been featured in Computer Arts magazine, Photoshop Creative, Disorder Magazine, Martin Dawber’s ‘The Big Book of Fashion Illustration’ as well being published around the world in a popular series of children’s pop-up books. Other pieces of my work has found it’s way into the entertainment, advertising and packaging industries.

My favourite topics for illustration include; fashion, portraits, tattoo flash, lowbrow art, pin-ups, poster art and quirky children’s books, all of which draw inspiration from the gods of illustration such as; Drew Struzan, Norman Rockwell, J.C. Leyendecker, Alex Ross, Dave Stephens, Will Eisner, Jack Kirby, Gill Evergren, Ralph Bakshi just to mention a few.

When not working you’ll find me at the cinema, preaching to my friends about movies, listening to movie soundtracks (with some grunge, metal, Jazz & funk thrown in), reading and obsessing over the fact that i’m not drawing.
