Live Illustration during ideation sessions for various clients. Marker on A3 pad.

The world-wide COVID pandemic has completely eliminated the possibility of doing this type of work in person, but I'm still providing live illustration - and more frequently, loose scribing followed by rapid delivery of digital illustration- for workshops of all sorts. Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss opportunities to amp up memorability of your sessions in these Zoom-fatigued times!

Most of the live illustration which I produce in ideation sessions / brainstorms / workshops is rightly locked down by NDA, but occasionally I work on sessions where the ideas are completely unconnected to the client’s work – and often completely bizarre! – the object being to encourage broad creative thinking by getting participants to generate ideas for sectors unrelated to those which they usually work in.

I thrive on these high-pressure, fire-and-forget type workshops, massaging loose concepts into simple, effective and memorable illustrations, and producing some of my favourite work in the process.

These are all two minute scamps, thrown together as quickly as possible on marker pads during these sessions. Please forgive image quality, as they’re all processed from quick phone photographs.


As well as studio work I offer live illustration services, live scribing, visualisation, graphic facilitation and pretty much anything else involving marker pens and ideas.

I can attend your meeting, product development workshop, brainstorm or other event with my markers and produce fast, accessible and creative visuals which really help to crystallise your ideas and make them comprehensible to other people. Perhaps you’re gathering to generate ideas and want a way of recording them simply and memorably – or bring a presentation to life with a visual representation of your subject, created as you talk. Maybe you need some boards drawn up for a meeting or presentation. That’s the type of thing I can do for you.

I’m presentable, friendly, confident and always eager to help – if you’d like to see some examples of this type of work or would just like to know more then please get in touch.

I’m based in London, UK, but am more than happy to travel to your venue and have worked across Europe and Scandinavia.
