I'm Dan Murrell and I have been an artist, illustrator and designer for over 28 years. I studied fine art at Bath university receiving a BA Hons degree and have taught life drawing and fine art at many colleges. I'm mainly know for my political satire and photo montage illustrations, but I can turn my hand to more or less any style, be it painting, drawing, even sculpture. The New Statesman magazine commissioned me to work on a collection of sketches for their new profile articles. The works featured in both the Creative review and the New Yorker magazines culminating in an exhibition.

I was asked to sketch a friends child earlier this year and I haven't looked back from that moment on (the penny dropped, so to speak). Now I dedicates many hours to the portraits. They make a wonderful unique gift and a superb alternative to the standard photographic portrait, all lovingly sketched on handmade, heavy gage watercolour paper.

I'm now taking commissions and I would be more than happy to draw anything you like, your children, your family, pets, buildings... anything. I do prefer to draw from life, but I know that its difficult with times and distances so photographs are fine as long as they are high resolution enough. If you would be interested in a drawing/painting please contact me or visit the website and leave your name and details with a brief outline of what you would like and how you would like it and I will be in touch.

Many thanks

Dan Murrell.

Hi Dan
Are you the artist for the Philosophy t-shirt in The Guardian?
Great image, but why is there no contribution from them to a Badger cause! Lot of people concerned over this.

Dear Dan, thank you for the wonderful portrait of our son Jack, for his 21st birthday. You have captured his 'style' completely! As you know, Harry dog's portraits brought me to tears-I love your work. Thank you again, best wishes from Susan and Stephen
