Detta Carfrae

I am a Scottish illustrator and designer that loves to create imaginative imagery that’s playful and clear, usually with an educational narrative. My work always starts with traditional methods of pencil and ink which are blended with digital methods allowing me to manipulate texture and soft colour palettes. These methods allow me to build images with digital mark-making tools, specifically paint-like brushstrokes, a technique which has been of particular interest to me within the past year. I also enjoy adapting my style to fit briefs, in particular for editorials and book illustrations. My inspirations stem from people, nature, a particular love for dinosaurs, and the environment. The environment and sustainability are themes within one of my personal projects and are themes that I wish to continue to focus on in the future.
