Work inspiration with
Full time illustrator based in Birmingham UK
I mainly work with Illustrator and Photoshop, sometimes Indesign if the job requires some design but I try my best to start all my work with good ol' pencils and paper. I've recently got my hands on a Wacom Tablet but I'm still getting to grips with it.
Ideal work environment
Ideally I like to work from home but if I'm honest I'd only get distracted by the internet or computer games. I find I tend to work best at the office surrounded by other creatives.
A lot of my work is inspired by pop culture and film and cult tv shows that I like. I read a lot of comics too. One day I'd like to pluck up the courage to write my own.
That's a big question! I have a big list but some of my favourite illustrators include Scott Campbell, Andrew Kolb, and Tad Carpenter. When I was younger I was inspired by Steve Purcell and artists from the Beano such as David Sutherland and Leo Baxendale.
