My Bio

Currently concentrating on Comics, Concept Art & illustration for Games & Entertainment Media and consultancy on unusual Design/Media/Cultural/Creative projects that interest me.

I have been a creative consultant and illustrator for the heritage, leisure, themed visitor attraction, museum & exhibition markets for over two decades and taught at art school for ten years.

Contact me at hesir@hotmail.co.uk to discuss your professional project.

I am also currently creating my own comics (The Cthulhiad) and have recently been collaborating on two other comics projects (Tragic Tales of Horrere, books 1 & 2 and The Viking Saga books, The Kings Leap and Ake’s Trial) with Madius Comics and Rob Jones respectively.

I am currently the artist on Time Bomb Comics’ Flintlock, and am working with Vince Hunt (Red Mask From Mars, Awesome Comics) on Coldwater Cove, as well as producing art for Xecutioners with Pat Mills for Space Warp.

You can find more work on my SrtStation hesir.artstation.com or you can follow me via Twitter @hesir.
