Thank you for taking the time to view a selection of my illustrations A little about me Having acquired a Grade F at GCSE Art in Leicester I moved to Cornwall I then attended sixth form in Newquay where my intention was to re take my GCSE in Art I was told to forget about the GCSE and take the A Level in one year instead At the end of the year I had passed with a C and had enrolled at Falmouth School of Art and Design At Falmouth I studied OND Technical Illustration I learned how to use airbrush gouache paints and pen and ink amongst others Upon completion of this course I set off for Southampton At Southampton University I decided to study Graphic Design I disliked every minute of it I have always strived to become better at anything I have ever done and to stretch myself but this course was mundane Luckily though I was able to switch courses just before Christmas and take on the challenge of HND Scientific Illustration Whilst gaining this qualification I rediscovered my fondness for illustrating with Pen and Ink to convey my subject matter usually wildlife I also learned to paint with watercolours which I try to do whenever time permits but always found the most striking of images were created using ink Although Pen and Ink illustration is very time consuming and requires an enormous amount of patience I believe the end results are more than worth it I hope you agree I still live in Cornwall after almost twenty years and have two beautiful daughters br All images shown on Not the Tate are available to purchase as signed limited edition digital prints The original artwork has been rendered using Rotring Pens Please feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions you may have and for details about commissions and sales of my prints Thank you Rob images ©copyright Rob Agar 587
