I use both traditional and digital techniques, creating logos and line illustrations for all sorts of uses - my work has appeared in award-winning packaging, advertising, design, direct marketing and digital publishing. I don't only illustrate whisky packaging, though do seem to have drawn quite a few labels in the last year and more.
Publishing work includes illustrations, book jacket designs, newspaper and online illustrated daily novels for best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith. I designed and illustrated 'Precious and the Puggies' translated into Scots by award winning author, James Robertson, which tells the story of the girlhood adventures of Precious Ramotswe, founder of the Number 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. The UK English language version 'Precious and the Monkeys' was published in 2011 by Polygon and US version by Random House entitled 'The Great Cake Mystery' in April 2012.
I was both illustrator and designer for 'The thing that mattered most', which won the UK national CLPE poetry book award.
Newspaper and editorial work includes illustrations for The Financial Times, The Telegraph, Good Housekeeping, Reader's Digest, The Sunday Express Magazine and mastheads for several newspapers.
Clients have included: Asda, British Midland, Direct Line, The Guardian, G2G3, Microsoft, Fontworks, Glenmorangie, Interflora, Kwik Fit, Standard Life, Laphroig, Northern Ireland Tourist Board, Scottish & Newcastle, Royal Bank of Scotland, Royal Mint, Royal Mail Group and by no means least The Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association.
