ABOUT
Hey-Joe Illustration

I studied art at Eastbourne College of Art and shortly after leaving began to work as
a freelance comic strip Illustrator. Since then I've enjoyed working in many areas of
the Illustration market, from Children's book Illustration to Promotional packaging.
I have also spent time as a professional Signwriter supplying signage to many
Entertainment parks throughout the UK.
I've worked in many mediums over the years, from painting in oils on canvas to
airbrushing Gouache on to Cartridge paper, but here we are in the digital age and
the technology for creating artwork has moved on, along with market requirements.
While an ability to draw well influences all that I do, colouring these days is done
digitally using a graphics tab. It enables me to replicate work in other mediums in
a fraction of the time and the ability to make adjustments to the work, during and
after completion is an invaluable tool for the modern Illustrator.
 Work is generally produced digitally at 300dpi in RGB jpeg format unless other
requirements are specified. Preliminary sketches are offered with all commissions.

 If you have a project that you think would benefit from my particular style, please
go to the contact page. I'm always happy to discuss new projects with customers
and offer a friendly service and a guarantee that I will always meet a deadline once
a commission is accepted.
