Jonathan Allardyce - International Digital lifestyle illustrator. Aberdeenshire

Now based in Aberdeenshire, where his home overlooks the barley fields of the Buchan plains, Jonathan Allardyce is originally from Merseyside. Previously, he was an art director commissioning illustration work, but today, he’s a full-time creator of images. Working freelance, he gets to enjoy the fresh air and long, northern light of rural Scotland. He enjoys playing the piano, cycling, reading, running and spending time with his family. Meanwhile, Jonathan’s creative heroes include Vincent Van Gogh, Louise Borgeois, Hergé, Chester Brown, Daniel Clowes, Shaun Tan, Adrian Tomine and Marian Bantjes.

Training

Jonathan attended the Edinburgh College of Art where he studied for a BA Hons in Illustration & Photography, then an MDes in Illustration.

Approach

Drawing using his touch sensitive Wacom Cintiq display, Jonathan then colours and finishes his illustrations in Adobe Photoshop.

Style

Jonathan creates lively, colourful artwork for books, magazines and newspapers as well as advertising. Lifestyle images are a strength, and his work is clean, clear and figurative, often with a touch of humour.
