Julia Ashby Smyth
Julia is a freelance illustrator. When left to her own devices she draws, predominantly in pencil, heavily detailed fantasy, folk-lore, dark beasties and improbable, yet possible, mythical beings.
She has a tendency to create cartoons and nonsense characters, animal or human, sometimes a bit of both, and is often commissioned to produce caricatures.
Julia loves doing hand rendered lettering and a loose organic form of Celtic/Knox interlacing, often archaeological drawings, character origination and graphic design in pencil, pens and watercolour.
