About me

My name is Alan Hawkins, and I am a budding illustrator from Melbourne, Australia 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 explore predominantly fantasy and science fiction based themes, though some of my work is also well suited to children’s literature.

 

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 currently reside in Melbourne, Australia with my wonderfully supportive wife, and two young sons.

I invite you to have a browse through my ever growing portfolio here on my website. If you like my style and would like to discuss possible projects then I’d love to hear from you!
