Steps to Commissioning Work

The more information you can provide the better! Via email, telephone, Teams or Zoom meeting. When I have an idea of how much work is involved I can then give an accurate quote and timescale.

Steps in Producing the Work

All work is original and begins with draft sketches which are submitted for your feedback and any changes you wish to make. When you are happy with the revision I will provide a 'cleaned up' version in colour for approval before producing the final version as this Health and Safety example:

The final high resolution artwork is delivered in a format to suit your needs, whether for quality print or web use.


"After a successful career as a creative at the highest level in the advertising industry in London, I first met Nigel some 20 years ago. I have used Nigel's services ever since for all my graphic art. He is a ‘natural’. As well as being a talented and excellent illustrator and cartoonist, he is also a great concept man. He accurately interprets what’s in my head bringing it vibrantly to life. Nigel has the patience of a saint and is a joy to work with. I highly recommend him."

"For over 12 years Nigel has produced quality and innovative work including storyboards for use as individual stills and for incorporating into filmed animations. His ability to bring to life my simple 'stick-like' sketches and even bringing a few lines of text into pictorial life has always been nothing short of amazing. Keep up the great work."
