Hi, my name is Oli (AKA Stegosaurus).

I’m a digital painter of all things weird, fantastical, surreal, spooky, magical and mysterious – usually with a retro flavour. I can do normal too.

My work has appeared on book covers, in magazines, on posters, in exhibitions and on all sorts of sites around the web.

I'm also a creative writer, and a blogger on contemporary illustration for illustrationfriday.com and illustrationcloud.com.

My qualifications include a First Class Degree in Illustration and a Master's Degree with Distinction in Modern English Studies.
