About me!

hello there! My names ed, also known as Tarquin. I've been a doodler (as far as i know) as soon as i was able to get my chubby bambino mitts around a pen! I guess my passion for illustration is due to being lucky enough to be brought up in a creative family, my father is a dabbler in everything , from music, driftwood sculpture to poetry, he rocks at it all. My mother studied ceramics, and can probably draw far better than me! My older sister Emily studied fine art, and has a genius creative brain. Sister Grace who's studying at BIMM is musically gifted. And my little sister Holly is amazing with a camera! So yeah, being surrounded with creativeness has defenety helped me get where i am today with my illustration, and i only have my family to thank for that! thanks crouchers! you bunch of nutters!

i love to draw everything, but my personal passion in illustration lays in machinery. I used to be fascinated with the old cutaway annuals as a kid, and would look at them for hours and try to draw my own versions. I also loved to draw my dads bike, i guess i find something very satisfying in drawing components that link up to make a whole structure, the fascination has stuck with me ever since. Ive always drifted and explored other subjects and sometimes sticking to one for a good few years, but like a loyal pooch, machinery always manages to come back to me. I wanted to use this FMP as an opportunity to summarise what drawing machines means to me, and i hope it shows in the final images i produce.
here is my CV...its a very rough draft, but you get the idea.
