I’ve been busy in the last few weeks working on a couple of editorial illustration commissions that I’m looking forward to showing you soon.
Editorial illustration has always been a passion of mine, as I love the fact that I can mix together conceptual ideas and illustration into one.
I’m passionate about illustrations that support articles in a magazines, newspapers or books – making any publishing material stand out with effective artwork.
Alongside this I have also made a few adjustments to my portfolio and have improved my website design too, which you can take a look at. The biggest change includes my Contact and About page, so you now easily discover more about me.
It’s still work in progress as I look to add more images and improve the layout and design of the website.
Within today’s post you will discover my creative services as a freelance illustrator for hire, and show you what I can offer to clients within the editorial, publishing and advertising industry. If you’re searching for a freelance illustrator for hire and you want a professional style and impeccable service too, you’ve come to the right place!
So what are the three main illustration services that I can offer as a freelance illustrator for hire?
The first service I can offer is editorial illustration. Like I was saying previously, my style of illustration is well suited for editorial illustration.
I’m passionate and experienced with creating unique ideas and concepts that works within any editorial environment.
Using a mixture of gouache, watercolour, which is then digital enhanced, I offer a unique style of illustration.
I can make any editorial publication stand out and have worked with a handful of well-known clients in the last few years.
Including front cover and internal illustrations in magazines and newspapers, my clients include The Clerkenwell Post, The Londonist to Mary Christie Foundation.
I go about editorial commissions like every other illustration commission I get through the door, starting in my sketchbook. This is the place were I think and write my ideas onto paper. Helping me think and develop ideas to it absolute potential, as I believe the sketchbook (or layout paper) is the number one place to develop ideas before sending them to the client.
I love this process and getting to the nitty-gritty of a project, and pulling an idea apart.
The next service that I can offer as an illustrator is publishing illustration.
I have worked with many publishers in my experience of being illustrator, and it’s one of the most rewarding things to be a part of.
Commissions and projects that I’ve worked on include book cover illustrations, internal book illustrations to online publications, with effective illustration at it’s core.
I’ve worked with clients such as Bloomsbury, Outwest Publication to book cover illustrations.
I use my experience to make the reader sit up and take notice of both the text and illustration within each spread.
As a result of this, my illustrations have recently been featured within Alan Male’s new book ‘The Power and Influence of Illustration’, which discusses the subject of illustration. Published by Bloomsbury, the book showcases my collaborative project with Mat Klicz, revealing our Animal Farm project. Illustrating and designing currency and animal farm characters based on George Orwell’s novel.
My illustration style is bold, colourful, and warm, so if you’re looking for publishing illustrator or I’m searching for a freelance illustrator for hire, get in contact to start your publishing project now!
Alongside these two illustration industries that I’m passionate and inspired by, I also offer portrait illustration as a service.
I’ve always been drawn (no pun intended) to portrait illustration, as I love depicting someone’s face in one image. It’s the challenge of getting one’s face correct that makes it so exciting!
Illustrating the likes of Breaking Bad characters to The Walking Dead characters (there’s a theme here), my illustration style is perfect for portrait illustration.
I use my traditional style of illustration to come up with modern looking portraits.
