Reading under the blankets with a flashlight

Reading under the blankets with a flashlight

This was my favorite thing as a kid, apart from reading with the lights on. 🙂

Illustration and Cartoon Art Instagram Feed

I recently opened my own instagram art feed with hundreds of my illustrations and cartoons. I am delighted that in a few short weeks it has already gathered almost 800 followers.

I try to update it on a regular basis and I also include spontaneous sketches and doodles and other fun stuff from my studio. So if you like drawing, sketching and doodling then this feed might be for you.

Original Ian David Marsden cartoon art gallery is now open.

Original Ian David Marsden cartoon art gallery is now open.

Welcome to the Ian Marsden original art gallery and on-line shop!

VISIT THE SHOP HERE!

http://www.marsdenillustration.com/shop/

A new section of my website has just opened up. It’s a little shop where collectors and fans of original cartoon art can purchase select pieces from my own personal archives and collections.

Many of them have been published and some are over 20 years old, so it’s a bit of a walk down memory lane and there is a lot of fun stuff to see.

These originals look great framed in private homes, offices or even waiting rooms or other areas where walls can use some serious heightening of the “interesting factor”.
They also make WONDERFUL GIFT IDEAS. (Hint, hint.)

I would be delighted to add a personal dedication or custom sentence to the bottom of any piece.
Please let me know via e-mail when you purchase a drawing.

Also I will be adding more pieces, so keep checking back from time to time.
