Jamie Briggs, Bolton,United Kingdom Member Since October 2012 Artist Statement I am an illustrator based in Bolton, United Kingdom. The images people create say a lot about them in this case for me this is true. I have a good imagination, sense of humour and a quirky style. Most of this can be seen in my illustrations. Works I create are mostly images that show things you will rarely see in real life. I work towards making highly detailed pieces for both adult and child audiences adding some humour to each if needed. My style consists of Photo Manipulating images using the tools in Adobe Photoshop then placing them in place to give me a brief idea of what the final piece will look like. Then I will start to digital paint over the photos till the illustration is complete and I am happy with it. My inspiration comes from watching cartoons from Hanna-Barbera like Tom and Jerry, Scooby doo and The Flintstones, also Norman Rockwell he illustrated some of the best Magazine covers for the Saturday Evening Post. For this reason I would love to do editorial illustrations for magazines. I tend to get ideas out of nowhere from things that I have seen during the day, like when I go out for walks in the country or out to town I always find something that gives me idea to do a new illustration.
