About

Hey, thanks for stopping by, this site is all about the artistic streak in me that I don’t really get to use as much as I’d like anymore. This is all about that little part of my life that makes me the happiest, don’t let your peers tell you that drawing is just a past time, and not a proper job. I never wanted to be an astronaut when I was younger but hey that’s a proper job, someone out there is doing it, people do go out of this world, & drawing for me is my out of this world moment.

Having previously worked fulltime as a graphic designer for the likes of Newcastle United, George Clothing, Asda, Adidas to name a few. I left the industry behind to work fulltime in a secondary school with disaffected students, something I started part time when out the studio but now flipped it around allowing me freedom in my studio to enjoy my art, making me smile & hopefully you too.

So this is all about the illustrations I do freelance for the public, & companies – Authorsonline,  forkidsbykids & children’s books series. Its how I take the wonderful stories and create each illustration to a completed book. The ups and downs, the random ideas, the lazy days and the hitting a HB wall of leadlessness when totally stuck for that illustration for a page, oh and the cups of tea in-between.

Its about my commissioned pieces & drawings I randomly think might work & people might like.

Feel free to nose about & to find out more about each book & the daily development of illustrations or my random sketches, doodles to finished designs from my drawing board that now both Redbubble & Society6 promote & sell all crazy things with them on. I try to keep blogging as I develop a piece & love input & offer designs to be social media led at times. Feel free to post a comment or contact me but most of all….
Smile & Enjoy.

  1. Hello, Dave! This a wonderful online portfolio/collection and I love your introduction here. I couldn’t agree more: don’t let anyone belittle that which takes you out of this world. What are we here for, if not to thrive on the things that make us feel most alive?

    I get the sense you have a diverse artistic talent and enjoy exploring (which I admire). I’m particularly looking forward to checking out the lomography; it’s something I’ve wanted to try ever since I learned what it was!

    All the best and looking forward 🙂

    1. Thanks Julie, all new to this blogging eek… yeah I love all things art, drawing & buying, work in a school in my so called ‘real’ job working with so called ‘disaffected’ students so really love it when people see beyond their boundaries & believe & enjoy, Lomo is fantastic though a struggle to find places here that still print film, but its great, you’ve got to do it, its the future…well not quite.
      See your looking at publishing, have you looked at self publishing like Eddie Izzard did for his last book, if so have a look at http://www.authorsonline.co.uk, great company who I’ve worked with, highly recommended, anyway enjoy & look forward to reading your posts 🙂
