All my work is created digitally - although it begins with ink drawings that are then scanned in. In some images this line is removed, in others it is not. I work specifically for children's book publishing using Adobe Photoshop and I have also created imagery for Flash Animations using Adobe Illustrator (the two 'Arfer..' images).
I try to
avoid using pre-loaded/scanned textures, preferring to make my own by
hand. I use the Polygonal Lasso tool to create blocks of colour giving
it a sharp edge cut-out effect. This can be seen in the 'Macmillan' images
