For a start, no, that's not my real name, but a childhood nickname which stuck and which I've signed my artwork with for about as long as I can remember.

More to the point, I'm an illustrator living in Manchester in the UK. I've always loved the illustration from the 70s, 80s, and early 90s. People like Bob wakelin, Oliver Frey, Dermot Power and Drew Struzan had a big impact on me as a kid, and although I paint digitally, I've developed a process which is very similar to that used by the pencil/gouache/airbrush artists of the time.
