Alan Jones is a professional artist based in North Wales producing portraits and animal drawings in artist quality coloured pencils, graphite and gouache onto illustration board. Alan also co-owns a small design agency Mako Creative Solutions Ltd in Wrexham so only has time to produce these in the evenings and weekends so time is very much at a premium with some of them taking over 40 hours to produce. He has worked on numerous commissioned pieces and has exhibited his drawings in the National Exhibition of Wildlife Art and various galleries.

Alan has been commissioned by Derwent to produce various pieces of work including a drawing printed on the front of their sketchbooks and also won the “Decorate Derwent” competition to draw their avatar, which is being used, on their Facebook / Twitter accounts, and also as wallpaper on the iPad. You can see some more of his work on his Facebook Page.
