I am available to hire for your next illustration project.
I have been exhibiting artwork and animations regularly since 2006. My artworks have been in over thirty exhibitions since 2005. My animations have screened in over twenty film festivals locally and internationally.
I am currently gaining experience in freelance illustration, and I'd love to be given that opportunity with your next project.
The work I am most interested (at the moment) in is editorial, card design, product illustration, and murals. I am also very interested in collaborations.
My figurative portraits & illustrations feature high energy line work, painterly shading, blocked in colours and washes, and are influenced by my work in traditional hand-drawn animation. I prefer to work on paper or canvas than screen, and work with brush and ink, watercolour, oil paint and collage.

He freelances in editorial, book, and product illustration, as well as murals, story boards, motion graphics & animated GIFs.
His current favourite things to draw include antennas, mountains, urban landscapes, portraits, and consumer/domestic objects. (And Norbert, the Norwich Terrier, who accidentally flew).
With a background in both animation and fine arts, Simon prefers to work with pen and ink on paper to preserve the freshness that comes with the techniques. He is also technically proficient and adept at making his handmade images web, print, and device ready.
