I define illustration as the creation of original imagery to capture, promote or explain an idea. If a picture says a thousand words, an illustration should tell a story.’
I have been an illustrator for 30 years. The first seven years spent as an Illustrator Reprographic in the Australian Army. The subsequent years have been riding the roller-coaster of highs and lows that make the life of the Freelance Illustrator. 

Below is a sampling of the work completed over this period.
