NeiI Smith graduated as a Graphic Designer in 1990. From an early age drawing and painting have been a source of immense pleasure and escapism.With a keen interest in creative comic strip writing and illustration, The Beano,The Broons, Oor Wullie and fantasy publications such as 2000AD have been a great source of inspiration. This culminated in a commission to create the cover for the 2001 and 2003 edition of The Beano.
Alongside art classes Neil undertakes more elaborate commission work, bringing a sense of texture and illumination to his work, while still maintaining that vibrancy and enthusiasm that those early comic strips evoked. His work is currently on show in various galleries around Scotland and in private collections.
