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.
