Meet Neil Capel
What kind of work or accomplishments have you done in the art world? I produce original high quality illustrations for use in children's books, jigsaws, greeting cards and many other commercial applications. I also produce artwork using licensed characters for major publishing houses around the world. My website highlights my original artwork.
Have you won any awards for your artwork? Unfortunately not, but then I've never entered any competitions either, so it's not that surprising really!
How old are you? I am now 23 years old.
What is your art education background? I hold a HND in Design Illustration (Wildlife) from the Carmarthenshire College of Technology and Art, South Wales (UK). I started in business commercially producing artwork in March of 1998, after finishing college.
Every year, I work as an OXFAM steward at the major music festivals held in the UK. In return for my hard work, the festival organizers donate money to OXFAM for their overseas aide work.
What are your goals for your artwork? To see books with my artwork in them and my name on the cover.
