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.”
