Here's a small selection of my illustrations and paintings, some of which are commercial for the music industry and have featured in books, on posters and DVD covers and CD inserts.
I use an altogether separate style for my pop-art commissions, preferring to work digitally with airbrushes. I have a fast, effective turnaround method for working in this way and use Adobe Photoshop.
My other style of painting is representational and after years of experimenting with different media I've finally settled on mainly using pencils and oil paints.
Painting takes me away from the complexities of life and helps me to unwind. It's also rewarding too, in that it gives me a feeling of accomplishment every time I finish a piece of work.
