I am Jake Smithies, an illustrator, designer and musician based in Sheffield, UK. I work mainly in my signature, monochromatic heavy linework style, combining the vintage look of the 30s-50s with a modern and fresh touch. Currently with a main focus on Cowboys and Wonky Tigers…. Regardless if you are a company looking for a complete rebrand, a guy who wants to surprise his girlfriend with a drawn portrait or a band looking for a neat album design, I am happy to work with you on all of your projects!
If you are in need of an illustration, want advice on design issues or just a nice chat about hats and black coffee:
I’m your guy!
