I was about to tweet back with an answer when I realised I didn’t have one. Why did I draw all the acts with no eyes? After tracing it back to 2012, or thereabouts. I remember took over from another artist on the festival who drew everyone with no eyes, so I was just continuing on the tradition.
It still didn’t feel like an excuse, so even though it’s not on the brochure I thought I’d oblige…
I often get asked to do artwork to very tight deadlines, mostly to get artwork to the printers and meet submission deadlines. You might think commissioning original illustration work on a quick turnaround might sound a little crazy, but it really depends on the brief.
With a tight deadline, preparation is everything. From the concept design to final piece, it’s easy to fall into certain traps.
I’ve been an illustrator and designer for as long as I can remember, Working with people all over the world, providing them with design ideas as unique as they are.
Good illustration design aids good business, providing the confidence to present a public image with integrity and verve, and also win new customers. It’s my passion to engage people with good design across all media, whether providing an illustration commission, animation or a cross branded print campaign with online marketing and website.
With over 18 years industry and design studio experience and a dedication to researching the latest design trends and web technology, it’s not just about creating a look and feel , but solving design problems.
