How many years have you been a freelance illustrator?
Three years full time, but most of my adult life I’ve produced work part time.

How reliable are you?
The usual stock answer of never missed a deadline. I worked in marketing and design before going full time in illustration and it’s an excellent grounding in hitting a deadline and making sure the client is happy.

What can your work be applied to commercially?
Well, I’d hate to think it would only work in one area, so far I’ve produced editorial, book publishing, TV commercial, comic strip, fantasy gaming and computer gaming art. I like to think my style and varying approaches to creating my art helps to make it marketable to a lot of different uses.

Who are your top clients?
2000AD and Judge Dredd from Rebellion, the Radio Times, Harper Collins, Virgin Media and DC Thomsons.

Apart from illustration what other skills do you have?
I’ve completed Batman Returns on the Sega Mega Drive.

What’s your favourite sandwich filling?
Bacon.
