I'm a freelance, commercial illustrator.
After graduating from Falmouth I set up my illustration studio on the Gower in South Wales.
I enjoy working as an illustrator on editorial, promotional, advertising, branding and publishing commissions.
My innovative illustrations are bold, distinctive, wildly expressive and feature stylised characters.
I'm inspired by ink wash illustration and traditional techniques as well as modern digital practices. I love creating colourful visual work for children and working with clients on authorial work for charitable causes.
Meet our Crohn's and Colitis Cats
In 2019/20 I worked with Crohn's & Colitis UK on an interactive children's resource to be given to young children and their families. The project was a huge success and continues to help children living with the diseases today. In 2022, the video won The People's Choice Award at The Charity Film Awards in London.
As someone who lives with Crohn's disease myself, this was a project particularly close to my heart.
Lecturing, Video Work and Tutorials
As a qualified lecturer in further education, working in an education setting comes natural to me. Making instructional videos for projects using Premier Pro is something I particularly enjoy and uses my qualifications & experience in Technical Authoring.
"It was an absolute pleasure working with Thomas Wolfe to create our first ever children's story Meet our Crohn's and Colitis Cats. Tom brought so much fun to a health condition that is widely misunderstood and stigmatised. He worked creatively to ensure complicated and sometimes scary medical information was presented in an engaging way for children - while at the same time still being open and honest about difficult symptoms and feelings. Tom worked within our brand guidelines to create something that is very recognisable as Crohn's & Colitis UK, but at the same time unique and unlike anything else we've produced before. We sought feedback from users at various stages of the project, which Tom openly welcomed and used to tweak his designs - he even attended one of our Family Day events so he could meet children affected by Crohn's and Colitis and test his designs in person. We've had such an overwhelmingly positive response from our community - with over 1200 printed copies of the book sent out within the first 2 months - and we're confident the story will give children and their families hope for their futures for many years to come."
