LEON FAWDRY SIDWELL BA

FREELANCE STYLIZED ILLUSTRATOR & DESIGNER FROM WARWICKSHIRE, UK.


I have studied, practiced & taught art for many years on an educational & professional level. I use inspiration I gain from my experiences & interests to drive my creativity. I like to think my work adopts my personality.

I have  7 years of art school training &  have achieved a HND in graphic design & a BA hons in visual communication gained from studies at the Birmingham Institute of Art & Design.

My illustrations are highly stylized & can easily be distinguished as my work. To describe my style I would use the words traditional, charming, timeless & evocative mixed up with a dash of graphic boldness with powerful compositions & simplicity.

The primary practice I work in is linoleum printing though I also incorporate line & wash illustrations within my graphic design projects.

I am a reliable professional illustrator available for commission for all editorial, publishing & advertising projects, tutoring, collaborations, community projects & art direction.
