Gina Shord

Introduction

Hello, I am an experienced illustrator from Cornwall, now based in London, UK. With a Degree in Illustration from Falmouth University, I have been honing my craft since 2015.

Illustration Style

My illustrations have a unique wonky collage style that effectively conveys complex emotions, empathy, and human behaviour in a relatable way. They are accessible, cheeky, and wholehearted, capturing both the wonderful and not-so-wonderful aspects that make us human.

Sources of Inspiration

I draw inspiration from a diverse range of sources. People-watching, quirky fashion, drag, tattoo culture, alternative subcultures, spooky things, loose sketchbooks, charity shop finds, and even American bits and bobs all contribute to my creative process.

Visual Elements

To bring my illustrations to life, I utilise bold colours, decorative patterns, and textured pencil-like elements. By incorporating slightly off-perspective angles, I create a charming, handmade aesthetic.

Ultimate Goal

My ultimate goal as an illustrator is to transform initial concepts into captivating, finalied illustrations. With my versatility and reliability as a freelance illustrator, I have successfully worked on various projects. I am dedicated to producing work that resonates with both clients and consumers alike.
