My Bio
There is nothing I enjoy more than creating characters and making clients happy.

What makes me different? I can tailor my services and costs to suit your needs and budgets, using simple or more sophisticated colouring techniques. I have experience in changing my style and approach to suit your brand identity and creating an engaging, memorable and captivating character which your clients will love and make your professional presence memorable.

I have a variety of experience creating mascots and other design assets for a variety of companies from fashion, tradesmen and craftsmen, educational institues, zoological collections, bloggers/vloggers, website owners, marketing companies and many more. I can easily tailor my style and utilise my experience, to create something which perfectly fits your business and brand identity (or your money back - see FAQ).

I have an excellent knowledge of human and animal anatomy, and have studied this at
PostGraduate level, which help me to construct believable, engaging characters from
very cartoony to realistic. When designing non human characters (monsters and
other interesting creatures), my background in ecology helps me to create 'living' creatures,
rather than a flat 2D drawing. Contemplating a characters place in the world (what it eats,
where it lives), helps to construct a living character.

Just replied to your note. Hope those instructions help out.

Getting your art into groups is the best way to get your art exposed and increase watchers... and encouragers (is that a word?)
