ELT / Text Books

ELT (English Language Teaching) illustrations

Various publishers, 2001-2017
I’ve created artworks for over 165 books! ¬†Phew. And by the time you read this, I’ll probably have worked on a few more than that.

ELT and textbook drawings are often quite good fun as they’re just little snippets of a scene or a moment in time that really lend themselves to a humorous interpretation. That said, I’m sure I’ve drawn more than my lifetime quota of people washing the dishes or taking laundry out of the washing machine. However, I do get to learn lots of new and interesting things which I probably should have paid closer attention to whilst at school.

Here’s a selection of recent ELT artworks for various publishers around the world.
