Design and Illustration.

I create character illustrations, and have designed brochures and posters ready for print. I utilise both vector and raster image editing software for iconography, mock-ups, wireframes and interface elements and illustrations.

My preferred tools of choice are Affinity Desginer and Affinity Photo by Serif software, using a Huion Kamvas 16 Pro 4K Tablet Monitor, or ProCreate running on a 2019 iPad Pro.
