Who is quigonjim?
Father, husband, illustrator, designer, painter, rocker, reader and motor sport fan!
Is that not a enough? Ill expand on that a tad shall I
Ive been a freelance illustrator/comic artist/cartoonist and sometime graphic designer, website designer, portrait painter, nursery mural artist and sign writer for the last fifteen years Yup, Im a Jack of all trades really.
The thing I fear most is the white rectangle of doom and silence. I cant work without a heavy rock cd blaring out from somewhere in the house, Im particularly partial to a starter of Progressive Metal with a twist of cheesy 80s AOR spinkled over the top and for dessert a large bowl of Power Metal and a nice cup of Hanz Zimmer to wash it all down with. Sundays are my day off, where Im either feet up beer in hand watching the Superbikes, MotoGP or F1 on the box, or actually at a Superbike meet.
Currently I specialise in Superbike and MotoGP art, which I sell a fair few prints of, mainly through my website, www.quigonjim.co.uk and my eBay shop.
