Tools of the Trade

I often get asked how i produce my designs.  It is really no secret that I actually tend towards the traditional.  True I'd be lost without my dear friends at Adobe and Ned Graphics. However my first love is a pen I have used since university back in Hartlepool England.  There our tutors hammered home the importance of drawing.  It is a lesson that has kept me in work and has made my work feel very personal.

Other favourite tools of mine are liquid acrylic and inks.  I love how they bleed on a wet surface.  It is full of grace and make the simplest swoosh of a brush very dimensional.
