About Lisa Grant
Award winning narrative illustrator and multi-purpose image maker. Often approaching social issues, encouraging empathy through design and educating people on solutions that they can be a part of.

Personalised cards / portraits / other illustration or arty type presents.
Hello, all! I’ve had a lull in commissions recently so I’ve been busy working on my website/self promotional branding. However, it seems that I’ll be finished up with that quicker than I need to be which means… I need some more projects!
Get in touch with me via whatever means you’re comfortable with and let me know what kind of thing you’d like for a quick quote. I like to experiment so even if you’ve got an idea or preferred style for something and you’re not sure if it’s something I’d do, run it by me and we’ll see.
If you want a present for an upcoming birthday/anniversary/no particular reason I’m happy to do that for you as well.
I look forward to seeing what you’ve got for me!
Heyhey, Happy Halloween! Have a spoooooky demon badger protecting its mortal brethren from the badger cull… okay, this is not so much Halloweeny as it is Tolkienesque with a dash of political commentary. It was a combined request.
Made with Mischief, I really liked painting fire with it for my Daenerys pic so…
I rarely seize upon the opportunity to do something seasonal, but if someone gives me a cool enough idea I’ll go for it.
As you can see by my snazzy new Tumblr theme I’m in the middle of a re-brand at the moment, and one that I think I’m actually rather happy with this time. Now I just have to apply it to my portfolio site… also gotta think about making it smart phone friendly!
Been trying for a while to put together a logo that sums up the whole Dagaz (sun/day/transformation/that rune glyph that looks like a bow tie) thaing. I finally got a concept I like, I was trying to go for something that had a good balance of design and illustration elements but, as it’s progressed (right side), the illustration side of things is kinda… winning.
An animated logo where it transformed from one to another would be the most perfectly appropriate thing… not exactly practical, though. Unless someone wants to fund my holographic business cards?
Been playing around with this program called Mischief where you paint in vectors. Took the opportunity to do some unabashed Game of Thrones fan art.
Doing some logo development for a project I’m working on with the Artsadmin Youth Board. The plan is it’ll be a post-art-festival/exhibition/event discussion brunch where attendees of the evening before come together to chat about the work and generate ideas (and network, always important).
I was doing it in perfect vector shapes and typography at first but decided a hand rendered look would be much more suitable. It might just be my personal preference though (those dang illustrators thinking they’re graphic designers, eh?) but I have to run all this past the others to see what they think anyway.
Anonymous asked: 'Food desert.'
Okay, someone explained to me that food desert relates to the situation in the US where meat is cheap and veg is hard to obtain and so is expensive. I’m a Brit where it’s the other way around price-wise so I had no idea. :) (Just repeating ‘food desert’ over and over while talking about marshmallows just made me think they were talking about, you know, desserts.)
Anonymous asked: FOOD. DESERT.
I saw this in the tag of that post about the price of vegetarian food but I don’t understand what it means? Can you explain so I know what I missed here? :/
Oh, hello there. I’ve been doing some design work for a couple of yoga teachers I know who are running a teacher training workshop. The photo’s not mine, I’ve been working on text and composition. Doing the email design at the moment but here’s the postcard which has already been printed and distributed.
Miscellaneous drawing post - a thank you card I did for someone recently. She’d volunteered to be part of my portraits project ages back so I thought it was about time I got round to doing one for her.
Influenced by Gustav Klimt coz she likes ‘im (and I’ll take any excuse to play with metallic ink).
Put together a few photos of my illustrations of Greek Gods and Heroes at my cousin’s wedding. The bride’s aunt/uncles/cousins (that’s me!)/relevant partners were sat at Nyx (try not to get too distracted by the incredibly attractive people in the background there). Then I went around trying to photograph other tables without being obnoxious and in people’s way and still getting good shots…
AAAAAAH! IT’S HERE!
Don’t be alarmed! It’s just The Creepy Library, written by children at Brompton Library and illustrated by yours truly!
Join John the short, pot-bellied burglar, Riley the friendly ghost and Fluffy the library cat on an adventure full of evil bats, grumpy sea creatures and - most importantly - fantastic books!
A few weeks ago I helped out my god(less) mum who was running a pottery workshop for kids at a fête. I’ve not done much pottery before so I was mainly there to show people where things were and make sure they followed the rules, but at quiet periods throughout the day I worked on this little ceramic piggy, shown here fired and finished.
My slip painting skills leave a little to be desired but I still think he’s pretty neat!
