Hi, My name is mike walshe and i am an illustrator/artist from the north west of England. From my earliest memories i have had a passion for drawing, sketching, doodling etc which has stayed with me over the years.


I started to focus on a creative path when studying art and design at the local college in Southport where after completing the course i continued my education with a degree course in graphic arts at Liverpool John Moores university.


Through learning and further exploring different techniques and approaches whilst studying i took the decision in my final year of education to dedicate the time concentrating on illustration. Going back to the basics of pencil and paper was a concise choice that gave me more control with ideas and concepts through the process of creating new work.


After finishing my degree course i continued with illustration producing work for fanzines, websites, magazines, books and many personal projects to get my work out there.

I would describe my drawing style as abstract, original, a little unusual and sometimes psychedelic (mainly relating to the colour palettes i like to use). I am currently interested in learning new techniques and skills that can help me to improve me as an illustrator/artist.


I hope that you have enjoyed looking through my work and come back again. For any more information regarding commissions, contribution or collaborative projects please use the contact page or email me direct at michael_walshe@hotmail.co.uk.
