On Etsy since 2016

Creator of original artwork

I graduated with a 1st class BA Degree in Graphic Media in 2008 and have since worked in the art and design industry since. I've written and illustrated several best-selling how-to-draw books, selling close to a million combined copies to date, translated into 4 other languages and sold globally.

The work I sell on my site and Etsy store is original- created by yours truly from the ground up. Typically an image starts out as a sketch, the line-work then refined before adding the colour and tone. I try to bring my love of varying art styles; from manga to tattoo to graffiti art into my work and with the aim to make each piece eye-catching and unique.

The art game can be tough. I often feel frustrated that I (along with other original art creators) am competing in a huge arena of sellers who produce little more than a carbon copy of an existing picture or art thieves who literally steal an image from Google and stick it onto a product to sell. Search for the title or a popular anime or tv series and you'll see what I mean.

However prospective buyers are often none the wiser. I'd like to see shoppers support artists who have made the effort to bring something original into this world, who aren't looking for shortcuts or to make a sale off of another artist's works. So please read about the individual creators on Etsy- find out who they are and how they create their arts and crafts. Are they genuine? If you were to purchase an item on Etsy, will the profits support an artisan or simply fall into the pocket of an art thief or merchant who may not even have permission to reproduce the work they've made use of?

Thank you :)

Frequently asked questions
Where is my order?

If you've selected the tracking postage option, you should can refer to the tracking info for the latest update on your item location. If not, it's on it's way but may be significantly delayed due to the pandemic situation, so I ask for patience until shipping companies are operating normally.

Care instructions

Prints are sent in postal tubes. To remove- give them a shake and carefully pull the rolled-up Print out. They will likely still be somewhat curled, so you can flatten them by:
1. Placing the print under a clean, heavy, flat surface for 24 hours
2. Reverse rolling
3. Placing in a frame or sleeve
Leave out of direct light for colours to last.

Do you print other sizes?

All Prints are A3 (11.7 inches x 16.5 / 29.7 cm x 42cm). I am able to sell smaller Gloss A4 versions of any print for the same price- leave a note when ordering and I will arrange this.

For larger, or customised prints, please contact me in advance to discuss.
