Independent artist, illustrator & animator,
with a love of all things analog.

Following a quiet childhood spent scribbling in the corner of rooms, Con first made a name for himself working at award winning design studio’s in London, before finally settling in Bristol and turning his hand to his true passion – illustration, in 2021. 

His annual poster series for Bristol Jazz festival earned him significant exposure online, helping him to build a reputation for his playful blend of analog illustration, animation and graphic design. Con spends his time supporting the creative community through talks and mentoring, collaborating on projects with friends, and working directly with his own clients.

Kind words

It was nothing less than a pleasure commissioning and working with Con on our recent illustration brief for Gather Round. Aside from being an all-round nice guy, Con delivered high quality concepts, creative design thinking and final artwork. On top of this, Con was really communicative, timely and accommodating throughout the whole project. Fiasco and Gather Round were super happy with the final artwork and I would recommend Con to anyone looking to commission his work

His passion and for storytelling, and enthusiasm for his craft make him the perfect illustration partner. Combined with a smooth creative process, we couldn’t imagine a better partner for this kind of collaboration.

He ticks absolutely every box on my list of what makes the perfect creative - working with him was an absolute joy and I hope we'll be collaborators for a long time to come.

Con's work completely changed our public impression from unnoticed to bold and unforgettable. His characterful illustrations and energetic, enchanting motion work injected a new wave of artistry into the images and promotion for both our festival lead-up as well as the weekend itself. Without being overly dramatic, it's truly fair to say Con's work made Bristol Jazz Festival the talk of the Bristol visual arts & musical community, which introduced us to so many new fans and an entire new generation of Jazz lovers.
