About me:Freelance illustrator partial to writing. You can find my web site over here.
I work from my own home studio and do some part time work to help make ends meet. The handful of images found here are based on illustration commissions with which I get involved. I steer clear of 'fine art', concentrating instead on mainstream commercial art and design. Done architectural illustration, newspaper artwork, promotional design and greeting card design. The main areas I'd prefer to work in are interior book and magazine illustration, using a distinctive B&W style. I'm always on the look out for interesting opportunities, so if you're after a similar look, or know someone who does, get in touch! The video below shows a selection of my work. It takes a while to load into view.
I also enjoy writing thriller novels and short stories. On the go at the moment are a series of environmental thrillers called 'The Rushmore Incidents' and a project called 'Still Water'. Details are found in these guides, which will be updated often:

BooksI’ll read anything once. Prefer accessible, mainstream fiction with thrilling adventure and interesting new ideas that push credibility beyond our comfort zone. Be that in a scientific, supernatural or disturbing way. Dislike hardcore horror. Tired of done to death orcs and goblins, fantasy epics with unpronounceable race and place names. ‘Star Wars’ space operas not my thing, neither are spoof comedy novels. They’re all great and enjoyable, I’ve just had my fill. Classic authors such as Tolkien and Lovecraft I liked, without the need to place them under the literary microscope for analysis. Short stories are wonderful to read. I also enjoy quality glossy magazines. Some of them on the market today are real works of art, with an abundence of talent gone into their creation!
