Digital Sketchbook

Digital Illustration

A collection of digital art pieces produced over the last 2 years. Created using a Wacom Intuos 5 and Adobe Photoshop.

I have a particular interest in figure drawing, portrait pieces and the relationship between light and form. In these studies I wanted to explore these areas and refine my abilities with a Wacom tablet, challenging myself to draw straight to a digital canvas where I would normally use scanned paper sketches to start.

Technology affords designers and artists many benefits, not least having incredibly accurate colour mixing tools. The ability to quickly re compose a piece is simply amazing when compared to traditional drawing techniques and allows you to be much more experimental when working digitally.

About Me

My name is Andy Hook, I’m a digital illustrator, web designer & front-end developer currently based in East Sussex.

I am a dedicated, enthusiastic and highly-motivated web professional with over 5 years commercial design and development experience. Formally educated in fine art, illustration and graphic design. I have spent over 10 years working with the Adobe suite of creative applications. I have a passion for art and design, specifically how these disiplines can integrate with modern web technology.

I believe that good design is always in service of the user and it's my job to ensure that a project achieves both its business objectives and the needs of its users above all else.

This site was built using Metalsmith, styles written in SASS and modular Javascript developed with RequireJS. For those interested, the souce code is available on Github. If you have any questions let me know.

Responsive Web Design

Coupling aesthetic design sensibilities with user experience and front-end development allows me to build the best possible online experience from concept all the way to code delivery.

Digital Illustration

By using modern Wacom input tools combined with traditional illustration and artistic techniques I deliver compelling digital illustration for both web and print media.

Front-End Development

Utilizing the latest pre-processing technology, client side build tools and CSS architectural methodologies I produce clean, modular front-end code and mobile first web solutions.
