Jonathan Dixon - Dixon Does Doodles
I'm an illustrator and print-maker based in beautiful Bristol in the United Kingdom. I'm also the father of three mini maniacs who amaze and inspire me to draw whenever I can about anything I can.
My main body of work at the moment centers around dinosaurs, animals, zombies and more dinosaurs. But I do draw just about anything, albeit in my style. Some people asking for child portraits have had a bit of a shock with the results!
I work in different mediums, but my 2 favorites are my crusty, rusty dip pen and a pot of ink which is messy, fun and the results are very pleasing to (my) eye and using porcelain paints on ceramic/stoneware kitchen ware.
As a child/teenager/twenty-something I drew ALL the time then I took an unexpected and unplanned break from drawing for a long time. The wonders of a job in retail and living life just made me forget how much I enjoy doodling.
But after a lot of poking and encouragement from my family I started again a few years ago and it feels fantastic!
I started drawing in secret as the results where not very pretty to me but as I progressed in letting my brain talk to my hand I took the step I never took before and started to show and sell my work.
It's been amazing to see people react positively to my work and I hope it continues for a long, long time!
