About Me



I am a freelance illustrator and designer based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. I especially love to draw characters, buildings, icons and food. Having previously worked in the giftware industry for several years, I combine a commercial eye with my quirky personality and whimsical humour to create pictures that make people smile.

I love to illustrate books and have recently created spot illustrations and front covers for Little, Brown Book Group and Hodder & Stoughton. My time is also spent running my online shop brand, selling prints of my drawings and other printed goodies. Lots of my prints are architectural and based on Sheffield and other places in Yorkshire. I also sell hand printed tote bags, colouring books, zines and mugs.

My qualifications include BA (hons) Illustration at The University of Huddersfield and MA Children's Book Illustration at The University of Central Lancashire. I also teach one-to-one Photoshop skills and have experience in leading workshops and presenting my work to school groups and colleges.

I am always excited to hear about new project ideas so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you are interested in collaborating. Please email me at jd@josephinedellow.com
