Testimonials

" I first commissioned Gary in 1988. I remember looking through an early contact and noticing a fantastic moody illustration of Jazz musicians in a New York bar. His expressive wash and line style have brought to life, literally hundreds of objects and scenes for me ever since. I can sincerely say that he is my favourite Illustrator! " Andrew Oliver Oliver Design Ltd " Gary has produced excellent figurative artwork for us on a wide range of titles for the Caribbean and Africa markets. He has a great attention to detail coupled with a lively, fun style. " Bob Swan Design Manager - Macmillan Education " At Public Finance magazine Gary was totally dependable, visualising often complex concepts whilst working at short notice to meet the deadlines of a weekly magazine. " John Bowling Art Director - Public Finance " As specialist designers of educational books we rely on freelance illustrators, not only to be excellent artists, but also to understand the underlying teaching requirements of the illustrations. Add to this the importance of delivering on time and budget. Gary has always fulfilled those criteria over many years on a range of jobs. His lively style, and in particular his expertise at portraying figures, have been particularly useful to us. He's a pleasure to work with and an artist that we can always recommend to our publishers. " Peter Lawrence Managing Director - Oxford Designers & Illustrators " Gary is a pleasure to work with. He reads and assimilates the artwork brief. He produces roughs that are detailed enough to make sensible comments on, whilst not being so detailed it breaks his heart to make changes. He makes any necessary corrections carefully and does everything within the agreed time frame. " Jane Shuter Author / Editor " Gary's work always delivers the intention and concept of the artwork brief within the confines of rigorous publisher deadlines. A strong inclusion for any book and a sheer joy to work with.
