Freelance Illustration Manchester

Hi, I'm Robbie and I work as a freelance illustrator in Manchester.

I have over ten years professional experience as an illustrator, cartoonist and graphic designer creating personalised designs for hundreds of clients. My illustrations and designs have been used for children's play areas, company mascots design, magazine advertising, children's books and many personalised illustration commissions.

As well as offering illustration commissions I also design and sell illustration prints, greeting cards, t-shirts and pet portraits at fairs and comic cons across the UK.

Freelance Graphic Design

Graphic Design Manchester

I'm a graphic designer with over ten years experience creating responsive websites, leaflets, logos, emails, business cards and magazine advertising.

I have been drawing since I was able to hold a pencil, being an illustrator is not just a job to me, it's my way of life. This is why every project I complete I make sure to do it to the highest standard.

I have a cartoon style to my work, first I sketch by hand and then create digital versions using Photoshop and Illustrator. My personal work can range from cute and innocent to weird with a twisted sense of humour.

I work closely with clients both big and small on both private one-off commissions and larger on-going projects, I have a very personal approach to my work and take great pride in completing projects to the highest possible standard. Services I offer include:

If you think my illustration style would be well suited to your project then get in touch through my contact form and describe wht you need. From there I will be able to ask any additional information and give you a quote for the work required.

As well as illustration commissions I create cartoon style merchandise featuring my artwork. I sell these designs as greeting cards, art prints, t-shirts, stickers, mugs and more.
