Hi! I’m Sean, an award-winning Illustrator/Mural Artist from Liverpool.
For as long as I can remember I’ve loved to create and making my passion my profession was the best decision I’ve ever made.
Since I began 4 years ago; I have illustrated over 30 picture books, painted over 10 murals, featured in 3 major exhibitions across the UK, attended over 15 events with my work, successfully led and curated 2 art campaigns in support of the well-being of animals, taken over 200 cartoon portrait commissions, had my work stocked in over 20 locations across the UK, and have built up a large catalogue of merchandise that I sell both online and in my studio.
My studio is based in the heart of Liverpool City Centre in a wonderful creative hub called MerseyMade.
The way I illustrate is very unique to me. I hand draw all of my illustrations using tombow pens and colour them in using a range of watercolours, liquid based watercolours, pens, pastels, and crayons. I then scan the work into my computer and touch them up digitally. I always aim to make my work as colourful as I can and feel using a mix of traditional/modern techniques really brings out a fresh look to all of my pieces. As for my murals I use a range of spray-paints and pens, all finished off with a strong coat of top quality varnish.
Some of my personal big achievements have been representing Instagram as an official Arts Ambassador (and winning their ‘Ambassador Of The Month award), being an Echo Awards finalist in 2018, winning the People’s Book Prize in 2017, Sean Lennon owning some of my work, Brian Ray owning some of my work, getting invited to Phil X's private sound check to give him a print of mine... and oh yes, Paul McCartney pointing at one of my illustrations and saying ‘wow’!
I can’t wait for what the future has in store, bring it on!
