I and my partner are the only two full-timers composing the core of the consultancy, but we call on our extensive network of freelancers to fulfill tasks that require further input.
I specialise in illustration for children's publishing, including jacket design & layout, but can also provide design for logos, commercial material, brochures and tee-shirts.
I bring my own particular brand of illustration to the group, using graphite, inks, airbrush and digital effects (not necessarily all in the same work!). I tend to put a great deal of hand-drawn elements into my illustrative works, and employ rich-but-muted colours and gradients.
