Duncan Beedie - Illustrator

About the Illustrator

Duncan is a freelance illustrator based in Bristol, UK. He has been doodling and drawing since way back in the early 1980s, lying on his parents' living room floor, grasping a felt tip in his clammy little fist, through to his current profession, grasping a Wacom stylus in his clammy little fist. So, not much has changed, although he no longer lies on the floor to draw. He has a desk in a studio that overlooks the city. It's much more accommodating than nylon shag pile. Read a Q&A here.
