An eclectic mix of alphabets, punny greetings cards and intricate cityscape illustrations
I'm a designer and illustrator based in Liverpool's most creative area - Baltic Triangle.
I have a degree in Graphic Arts, but I didn't start drawing properly until 2009, while working in a call centre. In 2014 I gave up my day job to concentrate fully on my business.
I love creating unique and personalised cards and prints. Many of my products are made by myself in my studio in a converted warehouse; and I do my best to source products and materials from within the UK.
I love making products which make people smile; there's nothing better than watching the delight on someone's face as they open a personalised card, or their expression as they try and figure out what each of the tiny images on an alphabet card is.
Alphabets, punny cards and skylines
I've drawn around twenty different themed alphabets - including an A-Z of my greatest love, cheese. This range is constantly evolving. I work mainly in watercolour and ink, but also manipulate my images digitally when necessary.
My personalised cards are all made using a font which I drew by hand, using a dip pen and ink. Each personalised card is made digitally, by individually placing each letter and adjusting the personalisation by eye until it looks "right"! It's a time consuming process but the result is unique and totally personal.
My latest project is a series of city skyline illustrations - using information provided on Social Media by people who know and love each city, to give a contemporary and all-encompassing shortlist of landmarks. I then condense the landmarks into a single line drawing, each with it's own quirky character. My personal favourites so far include Bristol, Newcastle and of course my hometown, Liverpool.
