Chewed up and spat out by the internet


Art that sells

Idea-based illustration for advertising, web, print, publishing and new media.  Over 30 years’ experience working as an Art Director, illustrator and animator on leading brands. I have worked in major advertising agencies in London and Scotland, and am now based in Cumbria.

The Leith agency in Scotland used my work ‘The Askit Man’ for an iconic advertising campaign. It won a DADA, and was featured in the book ‘Made in Scotland’ by Carole Foreman (www.birlinn.co.uk)

Together with fellow creative Gareth Howells, I designed a zero-cost animation to help fund the building of a new high school in Portobello, Edinburgh. The animation went viral, helping raise £42.5 million for the project, and £11 million for a new school building on Portobello High’s old site.

I made a similar viral film to raise funds for an outdoor community pool in Tynemouth.
I have been awarded ‘Best Cartoon Illustration & Animation Studio in Northwest, 2018’ by SME News.

I own and manage a brand called ‘Flockinsheepcards’, for which I have designed over 50 hilarious greeting cards for a variety of occasions.

Please contact me to talk over your project.

Clients I have worked for include:

Asda, Askit, Alliance and Leicester, British Gas, Bulmers, Campbells, The Drum, Scottish Power, Oxford University Press, Macmillan Publishers Ltd, Kirin Beverages, Nestle, Subway, Lerner Publications, Standard Life, Yorkshire Building Society.
