I am a qualified architect, currently working as an associate for London-based Pollard Thomas Edwards. In this company, my primary role is a design architect, managing projects up to Stage D and leading competition teams.
I have had over 16 years of working experience in various architects’ practices and 7 years of post Part 3 experience. A major part of my daily work is to produce free-hand sketches to convey our design intents to the clients, planners, consultants and our internal team members. Quite often I have to produce ‘artist’s-impressions’ myself for planning, consultation and publicity purposes. Although we do normally contract out such tasks to independent artists, for maximum speed and efficiency, we sometimes prefer in-house productions. Since I have gained a good reputation with my illustrations, I also illustrate for jobs that belong to other teams within the office.
My ex-colleagues who have gone ‘solo’ have constantly come back to me to seek assistance to illustrate their own projects. I therefore set up a studio, idvision STUDIO, 2 years ago and started to take small commissions as my ‘weekend hobby’.
During my school years, I always illustrated my ideas with watercolour. My abilities to build 3d models and reder CGIs have been acquired over the years from work. Nowadays, most of my ‘line & wash’ illustrations are being done with a pen tablet, which means my ‘free-hand’ drawings are in fact digital.
