Hello! I’m Alan Jones

Have pencil will draw.

Overview

I’m an illustrator, artist and designer based in Rhosllanerchrugog (Rhos for short – pronounced like the word “Roast” but without the “t”) a small village in beautiful North Wales UK.

I have drawn since I was able to hold a crayon, my father used to draw but never pursued it as a career, so that is probably where the root of my creative talent grows from. I get inspiration from everywhere, being taken for a walk in the countryside by my faithful dog Beau, landscapes, architecture, reading copious amounts of science fiction/fantasy books and people watching.

I always listen to music while I work, ranging from Marillion, Chill Out, Classical to Euphoric dance, but sometimes you just can’t beat a bit of Metallica to get those pencils moving!

I do commissions of pets and I can draw you a portrait of your dog, cat, horse, rabbit, rat, snake or lizard – just give me a challenge!

I do commissions of people, and I can draw you a portrait of your loved ones, family members and even portraits from old photographs (depending on the quality).

I do book illustrations and I can create a stunning cover to make sure your book leaps off the shelves or iPad (other viewing devices are available) I can illustrate the whole book as well, full colour page illustrations or black and white, children’s full page picture books are a speciality.

I do commissions of wildlife and I can draw your favourite wild animal, just let me know your specific requirements.

Looking for character design but not sure where to go? I can help starting with sketch ideas and developing them into fully fledged characters.

I design logos and can produce a complete corporate identity, character logo or name-style to give your business a professional image.

Oh, by the way, I also can paint landscapes, flowers and any scenic views you need to adorn that bare space in your lounge! Please contact me for more details!

 

Approach
 
I work in coloured pencil, graphite, watercolour, gouache and pen and ink. I also work digitally using a suite of creative software. I approach each project individually and will use different media to suit the project.
