children's book illustration
Welcome to the site, which is a variety of new work for children’s publishing. You’ve either come from my main Nathan Daniels site or directly via a promotional website or a direct email from me.
I’ve been an illustrator for 25 years, based in Bristol, UK, through a few styles and pseudonyms in that time (editorial in particular is very fashion conscious and needs to keep up with the times).
Clients include newspapers (The Guardian, The Washington Post, The Mirror and Financial Times), many many magazines (longest regular contribution: 15 years), Design clients including BBC, BT, Mars, VW, The Post Office, Tork (Sweden), Nescafe, Budget car Insurance, GlaxoSmithKline , Just Retirement and American Express. Also storyboard work for Aardman, and producing artwork to be animated for title sequences, web films/games and Adverts. I do a good line in portraits. And some pretty sharp infographics and icons.
This work is a much more fun alternative to my tighter editorial/design/advertising style (there’s a link at the bottom to http://www.nathandaniels.com) . Stylewise, very different to this work, but hopefully shows me as an ideas guy who loves to find that unusual/creative visual solution. They’re all commission based, so maybe have that bit more focus than these unpublished pieces.
Lots of The Guardian Sports ones give me five hours from getting copy: think of idea/s, draw roughs, getting roughs approved and then artwork finished), I’m never going to miss publishing deadlines.
Am I a writer as well? If you’ve come here from a direct email from me, you’ve hopefully seen a couple of rough book samples already.
Feel free to contact me (professional enquiries only).
