His work includes ground-breaking titles such as the psychedelic Shade The Changing Man and SKIN, about a skinhead suffering from the effects of Thalidomide, up to Greek Street, an homage to Greek myth seen through the prism of violent modern-day London.

He has also had two films produced: Pilgrim starring Ray Liotta and An Angel For May, starring Tom Wilkinson.

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.
