About

I'm a freelance illustrator and designer based in North Yorkshire (UK), though location isn't a barrier – I’ve worked with clients all over the UK and further afield. For no particular reason, I often work under the moniker House of Deadleg.

The majority of my work is character-based vector illustration, but I also enjoy drawing lettering, making maps, creating logos and brands, and experimenting with new software and illustration techniques. Mainly vectors, with some pencils and pixels mixed in.

I specialise in bold and bright vector illustrations and character design suitable for any application, but I have an adaptable style and am happy to work across mediums and software applications. I have a particular interest in animation and children's picture books, something I'm currently working on developing further for my portfolio.

I'm a member of the Association of Illustrators and the York Guild of Media Arts, and I'm currently available for projects, collaborations and commissions. I'm particularly interested in opportunities for representation and illustration work for publishing.

If you're looking to hire an illustrator for a project, please get in touch for a chat.

Testimonials

I was looking for a logo for a future project and contacted Simon as I'd been impressed with the illustrations on his website. From the vague brief that he was given, Simon produced multiple options, all of which were beyond my expectations. Once I'd chosen the most suitable, he added further embellishments that added real quality to the design. The design was turned round well within the timescale Simon was given and at a really reasonable price. Gordon Tennent, Sneakytrick
