Over the years I have created hundreds of designs for a myriad of applications – children’s books, clothing, jigsaw puzzles, wildlife souvenirs, children’s toys, board games, island resort maps, fantasy maps, and character design for cartoons.
I use pen and inks, or computer graphics (AI), the latter being an ‘art’ form with which I’m still grappling!
