Personalised illustrations & artwork

Q. How long will it take for my personalised illustration and/or artwork to be created?

A. All illustrations are handmade to order just for you and every piece will vary in timescale depending on its complexity. I do aim to complete within 10-14 working days.   If you are in a hurry for a personalised illustration please contact me and I will see what I can do.

Q. What changes can I make?      

A. I want you to be ecstatic, delighted and excited when you see the final work so I will try and keep you briefed throughout the process.  Most clients are happy with a few photos of sketches at the initial design stage, and then a few more as the piece progresses.  Alterations will affect the timescale of the piece being completed, so it is important to make changes at the initial sketching stage.  I cannot make changes to the design after this stage.  

Press & Media

Q. Can I contact you about your design and involvement in Oor Wullie Big Bucket Trail 2019 or Tick-Tock Penguin Parade 2018?

A.  Absolutely!  Wullieosaurus captured Dundee children's imagination.  Wullieosaurus raised £4000 at auction for Archie Foundation Tayside in September 2019.  Tick-Tock was purchased by The Wellgate Shopping Centre and he currently keeps an eye on everyone who walks through the centre. 

Q. Can I interview you for my blog or podcast?

A. Absolutely!  Feel free to contact me and send some questions and I will do my best to accommodate your requests. 



Q. Do you do custom logos, headers and designs for small businesses?

A. Yes!  Contact me to discuss this.  I love working with start ups and small businesses.   Special discounts available!  Just ask and I will see what I can do for you.

Q. I've written a book, can you illustrate it?

A. Yes!  I work with self published writers, as well as publishers.  I understand how difficult it is for writers to get their work picked up by publishing houses and self publishing is incredibly popular (and successful) now.  Contact me to discuss this.  I work on a royalty system when you are unable to make an advance payment for illustration services.
