At A P Illustrations we cover all sorts of work, making greetings cards and children’s books to painting portraits and designing works for businesses and peoples needs!
For me, drawing is about bringing something alive. I love the power of imagination. I enjoy immersing myself in drawing. I get lost in creating my work and aim for the viewer to do the same. I strive for the detail that enables somebody to enter my world.
I am fascinated by the process of developing sequential narratives. Storylines intrigue me and bring up challenges and questions like: how do I hook an audience, how do I maintain their interest, how do I build expectation and how do I finish? This interest has led me to forms such as animation, which I would love to do more of, and also linked images and book form. The packaging of my work is important, too. Presentation is a key factor, for me it is all to do with expectation and making your audience active, they have to participate in the process.
While some of my work is aimed at adults, much of it is aimed at children.
With every brief I have been given I relish the challenge. I love the challenge of the new journey that my research will take me on, it is quite often to places I wasn’t expecting at all.
