Illustrator Rosie Dore

Though I am comfortable working within a range of themes, animals and wildlife are an especially strong focus for much of my work, as well as a personal fascination of mine; I love learning about the animals I draw through both research and real-life observation, and capturing their liveliness and behaviour in my illustrations as I see them. I particularly love creating animal characters, and enjoy the challenge of portraying more anthropomorphic features and expressions in an animal form in a way that still feels natural and believable for that creature.

I work mainly with watercolours, glass pen and ink, often manipulating my drawings digitally with my own hand-painted scanned textures to create interesting, multi-layered effects. I aim to produce work that is expressive, engaging and characterful, and to spark appreciation and interest for the many creature subjects that I draw.
