Full name

Michael Watson / Ironheart Illustrations


Illustrator, Graphic Designer, Photographer


With inspirations including record sleeves, comics and historical artists, Art and Illustration is my reason for been. Throughout my education I have driven myself towards achieving a career in Visual Communication through a flexible variety of styles and approaches that blend my own creative flare with the needs of my clients.

In 2012, after spending time working in studios, I started Ironheart Illustrations, my freelance brand name. Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with a range of clients including bands, record labels and promotion companies, working on Album Covers, Posters, Branding and beyond.

I have also entered various pieces into exhibitions such as Telford’s Galleries Alive and The Place’s Open Exhibition, as well as organising my own events such as Forging The Void.

My styles are designed to be flexible whilst distinctive. I have expertise in Digital Software such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator as well as traditional techniques and Photography.

I am open to any style of project so feel free to get in touch with any ideas or questions you may have through email: Ironheartillustrations@yahoo.com

You can also keep up to date with my ongoing work through my Facebook page.
