After years of being a garment graphic designer for the high-street fashion industry Simon decided to step away and follow his passion of illustration.

Growing up in a sleepy farming village in he Midlands, Simon immersed himself in Film, Animation and American Comic Books. These and his fondness for the aesthetic of the late sixties and early seventies prove constant inspiration and influence on his work.

As an individual away from his work, Simon still loves to draw, and has sketchbooks full of streams of consciousness. He enjoys being taken on an adventure, in any media, and runs a few miles most days, just him and his eclectic iPod keeping the pounds off as he adores good food.
