Freelance Artist and Illustrator

Freelance illustrator from England, based in Asia, working throughout the world!

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my illustration portfolio site. My name is Oliver Raw – yep, that is my real surname. I am an illustrator from the UK working with editorial and advertising in England, Asia and the US.

This digital age allows me to work remotely and I base myself in Asia (Thailand to be precise). My office consists of a laptop and tablet and pen and its transports itself fairly regularly; I have even submitted work to deadline from an unheated room in a monastery 4000 metres in the Himalayas.

My illustrations have been published in newspapers and magazines in UK, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Japan, Australia, UAE and the US. I started out as a children’s book illustrator and now work largely in editorial. After several years as a professional illustrator I am accustomed to late nights and tight deadlines. I am also a caricature artist and cartoonist and when I’m not drowning in coffee at my desk I like roaming around with a holga camera.

Shoot me an email if you’d like to discuss the possibility of collaboration or whether you’d simply like to get in touch. If you have any questions about my freelance illustration services in England or elsewhere, I’ll be more than happy to answer you.
