Marsden Illustrator

Updates, current projects and news from the studio of
illustrator, designer and artist Ian David Marsden.

Artist Instagram and TikTok with lots of sketches, doodles and live drawings

It’s been a while since I updated my news blog. Things have been rather quiet on the project front due to the pandemic (like for many), so I don’t have a lot of new client work to show you, but I thought I would say a quick hello.

I recently started a TikTok channel, where I mostly post recordings of live drawings (digital and analog). So if you are on there and enjoy drawings, drop by and have a look.

I only have 120 followers here so far, so you can become a member of a highly exlusive club. 😀

This character design was my first foray into the world of mascot designs and logo character design and opened the door for many subsequent projects I was invited to participate in.
