Illustration, Retouching, Photoshop Illustration and Photoshop are some of my specialty areas. I studied life drawing for 6 years and have a BA in Illustration. During the 4 year course I studied all types of techniques including air brushing, life drawing, acrylics and print making. Since then I’ve become more computer savy. These days I primarily work with the mouse and wacom to produce high end images in Photoshop and Illustrator. Below you’ll find a small sample of my work to demonstrate diversity and some of my favorite pieces.
2 original paintings to sit side by side. Acrylics 1 sqm each. ‘Itchy Bear’ and ‘Whirly Pool’. The first painting was based on a canvas photocopy I found in a gallery. I tweaked the last stages to make it more dynamic with random splashes of paint. The second painting was lossely based on painting one to match the feel.

This is a loose style but editable. I draw in pencil, scan and trace with a brush tool in illustrator. I use the blob tool to do loose fills on a separate layer. This makes this type of illustration easy, fairly fast and fine to edit.
