Deliberate indifference

Featured in the Spring issue, I invited talented newcomer, illustrator Simon McAleese to introduce himself to you and share his passion for illustration work…

“I’m a freelance illustrator with a real passion for clothing. My work is a celebration of great clothing and the people who like to wear it. Inspiration comes to me from everywhere, including from the people I follow on Instagram. Depending on the style of illustration I’m producing, I tend to do a few freehand sketches using good old pencil and paper first, then either scan or digitally reproduce the draft I like best on Procreate or Illustrator. From there, I produce the line work, and base colours. I will then add further layers of detail including texture, shading, etc. based on the clients’ needs. I usually add any background details at the end where they help the subject ‘pop’.

GOALS FOR 2022

My goals for the rest of 2022 are to continue producing eye-catching illustrations to help companies promote their products, to work with a few of my personal bucket list of companies, and continue making friends and building relationships within the industry. I’ve also been producing freehand illustrations for T-shirts lately which has been a lot of fun, so more of that would be great, too.”
