Frquently Asked Questions

What software and hardware/tablet do you use?

Affinity Designer and a Wacom Cintiq Pro 16. I also use some markers, a mechanical pencil and sketchbook when coming up with ideas.

What kind of projects are you looking for?

Currently, I'm seeking freelance work in editorial, publishing and advertising illustration. I'm also interested in working on visuals for business blog articles and start-up websites.

Will you work for free or exposure?

No. As a professional illustrator and business, I cannot work for free. Like you, I have bills and expenses to pay. As much as I'd like to help you out, it's just not possible at this time.

What's your availability?

Open for new projects!

What is your art style called?

I guess you could call it flat-minimal. I like using clean geometric shapes, flat colours and no gradients.
