Hello my name is Darren and I am an Illustrator based in bonnie Glasgow, Scotland. I illustrate for children's picture books, chapter books and educational materials. I also create one off original prints and gifts.
I'm very open to projects on set or tight budgets, big or small. If you'd like to chat about a possible project feel free to drop me an email.
I take a lot of inspiration from wildlife and the environment around me.
I love animals, I think pretty much all my stories have animals in them!
I usually draw with a mixture of pen, indian ink and watercolours.
