Graham Smith

Hi, I am a freelance illustrator collaborating on art projects with talented people on an assignment basis. You can see my work in publications, on products, advertisements, and even TV.

My illustrations are drawn traditionally, with pen and ink or pencil, creating energetically hand-rendered drawings.  Illustrations are finished digitally, to clients specifications, using rich, organic textures, and deep, earthy colors.

Sketches, and concept art are drawn plentifully, and quickly. Generating the ideas is my favorite part of any project.
 
I teach a life drawing workshops to professional artists and animators. And, I'm very lucky to report that my new art book, Marks Vol. 1, debuted at the SDAI Museum in San Diego.

Parson's School of Design, New York, NY: BFA illustration.

"This guy’s stuff is great. It has a noir-like quality that could’ve come right out of the pulp fiction haydays of the 30’s and 40’s, but it still feels utterly modern. And unlike many graphic novel illustrators today he knows not to overdo it. He let’s us into the eyes or his subjects, shows us their wrinkles, and crooked smiles. He builds the character not through pyrotechnics of color and form, but through human emotion."
