Welcome to my place on the Web

I've been an artist and illustrator specialising in airbrush work for nearly thirty years now and although I do all kinds of work the bulk of my output has been fantasy and science-fiction bookcovers. Doing series covers for authors such as John Wyndham, Iain M Banks, Brian Aldiss, Michael Moorcock, Orson Scott Card and many, many more I've worked for all the major British publishers plus many US, European and Australian ones too. I also work for the advertising and media industries, as well as taking on private commissions. Oh, and I occasionally sell my work through Sotheby's and Bonham's of London.

Although the major part of my career was spent in the UK I'm presently residing on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia. To find out more about me and also about the techniques and media I employ try the ABOUT ME page. There's also a demonstration of basic AIRBRUSHING techniques there.
In GALLERY 1 you'll find samples of my bookcovers listed alphabetically by author's names from A to L and in GALLERY 2 from M to Z. In GALLERY 3 there's a selection of advertising and other work, and even a few of my privately commissioned pieces. (To be honest, I've been rather lax in keeping copies of my finished works over the years) A lot of the images are available in a moderately high resolution version too.
High quality prints are available to buy for many of the pictures in the gallery. For information on ordering and prices see the PRINTS page. You can also have the prints personalised for a small addition cost.
Most of the images displayed are also available for second-rights use. That is to say you can purchase the right to use them for a predetermined commercial purpose for a small fee. Find out more on the CONTACT page.

In the LATEST section there's some of my most recent illustrations. This website's old so they're not really new anymore but they're the latest I have until I get my finger out and get some new images prepared. There are my illustrations for Frank P Ryan's latest fantasy novel, 'The Snowmelt River' and some samples from the new book by Sally Odgers and myself, 'Fantastic Creatures'.

In the WALLPAPER section I've prepared some jpegs of a few of my pieces for use as wallpapers (desktops) and they're free to download for personal use.
The COPYRIGHT section explains about copyright and how it applies to all the images on the site. If you're unsure of what you're allowed to do under the International Coypright Laws take a look.
I frequently take on new commissions and would be happy to supply an estimation of price without any obligation. Get in touch with me via the CONTACT page.
