Hand-Drawn Illustration


Many of my illustrations are hand drawn using a pen with a 0.1mm nib. These are then scanned and digitally coloured. One of these was shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2010.

Past exhibitions include:
The Random Project at Rich Mix, London, 2012
Motive at The Book Club, London, 2010
She Laughs at Nexus Art Cafe, Manchester, 2009

RGBargie, Artweeks, Oxford, 2007
The Rock 'n' Roll Circus, Leeds, 2007
Coffee Revolution, Sheffield, 2006.
