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

Simon took our initial concept to very loose script and created a list of illustrations we needed to make our whiteboard video simply work. He delivered the first few illustrations in sketch form, and we knew he was going to nail it. On budget and on time every step of the way, Simon was not only a genius illustrator but a lovely person to work with. He has a talent for taking the everyday and making it sing. He delighted our audience with his clever and cute characters, and went beyond what we thought was even possible. We'd work with him again in a heartbeat. Jennifer del Greco, pndu.org
