Julia Ashby-Smyth
I live on the beautiful Isle of Man in a little house at the edge of Glen Elfin, surrounded by trees, perched on the slopes on North Barrule, and spend an irrational amount of time with the cats watching birdies outside the window when I should be working.

I work to commission, large or teeny, anything from caricatures and book illustration to tattoo design and technical drawing. Best look at the website! 

Favourite medium has to be pencil, it’s just the best for getting from imagination to paper without the brain getting in the way, and generally use a mixture of pens, felt tips, watercolour and whatever else is to hand. I also find I work particularly well with chocolate.

I have two erstwhile assistants, Slim cat and Skinny cat, who generally hog the fire and sit on the chocolate.
