pikaland/Amy Ng: How did you get your start in illustration?
Craig Atkinson: Coming from a Fine Art background I have always painted. Abstracts. To cut a long story short, I got tired of working in the way I was and decided one night to ‘stop’ painting. I got rid of my studio and got a small desk at home. I returned to drawing, it being the most simple way of getting a message across. I guess people saw my drawings online and commissioned me. I’ve never really looked for work so I’m lucky. I don’t really class myself as an illustrator in that way, although I’m happy to take commissions.
