Mears Exhibition Stand

Steve Best of Mears UK was kind enough to send me this photograph showing how my artwork was used in their exhibition stand.

The busy town image appears at the back of the stand, and I also did the cartoon illustrations of the people, supplied as single artworks for Steve to incorporate into his design.

“We have hired Richard for several projects and are always impressed with his professionalism and creativity, he has a great ability to Interpret our ideas and concepts into amazing pieces of work. Richard is very easy to work with and his talents always shine through, I look forward to the next project we will get to work with him on.”

IIlustration portfolio complete!

The illustration portfolio section of my new website is complete. It will soon be going live. One thing that will feature there is downloadable Ebooks so you can browse through categories of images. So they'll be titled 'Caricature Artist' Cartoonist' 'Commercial Artist' 'Book illustrator' - so versatile am I. These Ebooks can be updated with new work more frequently than the website itself.

William Heath Robinson

A bit of nostalgia in the style of cartoonist and mad inventor William Heath Robinson, one of my heroes.

Political cartoon. Not much has changed!

I'd forgotten I still had this. This cartoon illustration with cruel caricatures of world leaders and Arthur Scargill in 1991 was such a lovely job to do for a magazine cover for a lovely client. Their regular contributor was a famous cartoonist "who couldn't do it this time". I soon found out why. Never mind. They did send me a proof which was very kind.

New caricature illustrations

Christine is helping me get images and helpful copy together this week for my brand new website where more cartoons and caricatures will feature. It's always nice to be able to finish something the day I start it. These jobs make a welcome break from the epic illustrations that Christine and I work on together. The current 'epic' is a giant poster of the sights of London, like the one we did earlier of Dubai. We'll be posting sections of it soon on the blog.
