Stuart is a London-based illustrator who creates imagery for a diverse range of advertising and publishing clients throughout the USA and UK. He creates concept-orientated illustrations for editorial assignments through packaging, brochures, and annual reports.
Stuart comes from a background of making pictures with traditional materials and has transferred this practical experience to a digital environment where various elements are combined to produce a final image. Picture concepts and layouts are originated with pencil on paper and these are what I send to commissioners for approval before work on the final is begun.
Using the pencil drawing as a base he builds up the picture using Photoshop’s pen and brush tools, scanned drawn elements, man-made and digital textures, and photography. He takes his own photographs but will also incorporate those supplied to him by clients.
