Sorry this is a bit of a boring post but I have finally come up with what seems to be an OK artistic statement from my point of view about myself. Anyways please take a read if you get chance and see what you think, and if it does give a good but to the point description of me as a 'professional Illustrator'.
I am a freelance Illustrator from West Sussex in the South East of the United Kingdom.
After completing my A-Levels I then took part in a two-year foundation degree course in Illustration at Northbrook College. I have now begun my professional career in becoming an Illustrator.
I enjoy all aspects of art, especially that of commercial artwork, so that of art created for a purpose. I draw inspiration from my surroundings and interests, and work ultimately using these to better the creative outcome. I approach things with a graphic and realistic hand but ultimately I have a very loose style, which allows me to adapt to tackle various problems.
I love the idea of my work being used for a purpose as such rather than just to be hung on a wall with various aspects of the media inspiring and influencing my work.
I draw inspiration from the likes of films, music, books/comics, nature & wildlife, fantasy and science fiction. Particular emphasis on influence of course comes by that of work from various other artists, spreading across a wide spectrum of disciplines.
My most enjoyable work comes from that of doing work including my inspirations. Work as such that is a testament to these influences, bringing my ideas and imagination to life.
