Ollie is a conceptual illustrator. Illustration makes him tick. Though it’s not the only thing that does. He’s a cardiac pacemaker patient. So, whilst he puts his heart into drawing, it gets help from time to time. He likes his work to hinge on a strong idea, diluting complex topics into digestible visual concepts, helped by a splash of colour, for editorial and advertising, globally.
