A student of illustration and animation, Colin has also worked in the fields of animal and marine biology. Combining these experiences with his love of Norse and Saxon history and mythology, the Manchester-born freelancer specialises in book illustrations, creature designs and concept art.
While he was studying for his degree, Colin moved to Antwerp in Belgium as an exchange student. It gave him the opportunity to develop his skills in life drawing, portraiture, anatomy and landscapes.
“I’m inspired by oil painting masters from the past,” he says. “But equally I find inspiration in card, film, game and concept art.”
