My name is Alan Hawkins and I am a budding illustrator who enjoys delving into a self-made fantasy world of human, animal and otherworldly characters.
Working primarily in watercolour and gouache, with a touch of digital polish, my style is surreal, energetic and richly detailed. My illustrations suit both children’s literature, as well as fantasy and science fiction themes.
I have both a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree (majoring in painting) and an Advanced Diploma in Graphic Design which I studied in Melbourne, Australia. I have also completed a 15-week illustration course at Berghs School of Communication in Stockholm, Sweden, where I lived for two years.
I’m developing a diverse illustration folio that explores different universes, characters and story threads for original art and commissions.
I reside in Melbourne, Australia with my wonderfully supportive wife, and my two young sons.
I invite you to have a browse through my folio. If you like my style and would like to discuss possible projects then I’d love to hear from you!
