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.
I have the great pleasure of creating illustrations for a series of whiteboard scribing explainer videos for the U.S. Government written and produced by Coley Solutions.
This is a long-term, ongoing project to create a library of training videos and I am delighted to be part of this collaboration.
I am very experienced in the production of Whiteboard Scribing videos.
I can produce such videos for you from A to Z in various languages. Examples of my video productions can be found on my home page.
Mit grosser Freude darf ich ankÃ¼ndigen, dass ich ein sechstes Objekt mit der Unterschrift ‘Marsden‘ zur Design Kollektion von RITZENHOFF hinzufÃ¼gen durfte. RITZENHOFF ist einer der fÃ¼hrenden deutschen Produzenten fÃ¼r TrinkglÃ¤ser.
Ein weiterer Neukunde Ã¼ber den ich mich sehr freue, ist digades.
FÃ¼r eine tolle neue App die sich dfreeeze nennt, wurde ich beauftragt eine Serie von Illustrationen fÃ¼r Printwerbung und Plakate zu entwerfen. Mit dfreeeze kann man vom Smartphone aus die Standheizung im Auto fernsteuern.
Whiteboard EklÃ¤rvideos zur Werbekampagne die oben unter “Werbung” bereits erwÃ¤hnt wurde.
Je ein Englisches und ein Deutsches Whiteboard Scribing Explainer Video fÃ¼r den Kunden digades und ihre dfreeeze App produziert. Auf eine verspielte aber doch elegante Art wird erklÃ¤rt wie die App funktioniert.
Professional independent illustrator, designer, animator and cartoonist at your service
Hi, my name is Ian Marsden and I am an independent freelance illustrator, designer and cartoonist.
I work in various styles and I specialize in such areas as vector digital art, advertising illustration, graphics for business and educational use, character design, logo design, mascot design as well as caricature and cartoons.
The enclosed poster shows you a small example of the range of styles and areas of expertise I work in.
This is what the rough sketch looked like when it was completed:
and then I placed this rough sketch on a template layer inside my Adobe Illustrator document and drew and inked the line art for the three characters, the Jack-O-Lantern pumpkin, the witch/vampire lady and the werewolf.
Finally I also colored the artwork in illustrator using flats and shading and also several gradients.
The final artwork looks like this and is 100% vector art so it has no pixels and can be scaled to any size losslessly.
Follow me along in the following tutorial videos. If you have any questions please post them as a comment under the videos in my YouTube channel and I will try to answer them as quickly as possible.

A brand new beer glass design for RITZENHOFF.
A Weizenbier (white beer) glass with a fun original viking character created by artist and illustrator Ian David Marsden.
This high quality crystal RITZENHOFF Design Collection beer glass holds 500 ml and features a fun little viking character with a metallic gold helmet, sword and axe.

The unique beer glass ships in a black Designer tube and includes 5 custom coasters to match the design with the designers signature on the back.
This is the perfect gift for any chieftain or tribal leader (a family counts as a tribe, doesn’t it?) who occasionally enjoys a chilled, frothy beverage.
