Illustrations: The Not-so Horrible History of Cheadle Hulme School

I don't want to blow my own trumpet, but if you look at some of my illustrations and compare them to the great Horrible Histories illustrator Martin Brown there are some similarities, we both clearly have a sense of humour. I'm a fan of clean lines, stylised yet accurate anatomy and exaggerated expressions. You could […]

"I cannot recommend John enough. The service was exceptional, which for a technophobe was not only essential but also reassuring. All my questions were answered promptly in a way I could understand. The website was exactly how I envisaged with useful guides in order to develop and change the website myself over time. Overall a great service at a competitive price."

Claire Smith, Therapyline.

"As a new business, I can't overstress how important it's been for me to have a great website. John designed a fantastic site for me and I am constantly told by customers that it's the reason they've chosen me. He listened to what I wanted, researched my field and I now have a website that is amongst the best in my industry."
