About

Simon Whittaker

I'm a freelance illustrator and designer based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire (UK), though location isn't a barrier – I’ve worked with clients all over the UK and further afield. I'm trying to use it less often, but I sometimes work under the name 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. I have a particular interest in animation and children's picture books/publishing.

I'm a member of The Association of Illustrators (AOI), the York Guild of Media Arts and DogEatCog collective, and occasionally write book reviews for the AOI.

We should talk about that great idea you have that's just begging for some illustration to really make it sing.

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
