My name is Alex Brissenden (also known as Illus Bee). I work as a freelance illustrator after studying and graduating from Plymouth University. Currently, I continue to be based in the south-west, in my hometown of Plymouth. I primarily gain inspiration from basic, organic shapes seen in the world and will build up my compositions using them as a starting point. I love to create naïve, friendly and colourful illustrations!

Clients, collaborations, competitions and features include:

INK JOURNAL, Girl-Zine, Letters Home, Cheltenham Illustration Awards, teefury, Pillow Fight, Creativ Paper, Babiroo and Exeter Electric Bike Hire.

You may have also seen me at Tiny Mart or Shake Bristol!
