Lisa Evans

Hello! I'm an illustrator from Jersey (the small Jersey between France and England), currently living in England. I've been a freelance illustrator for 7 years, working on children's books, advertising campaigns and editorial commissions.
Alongside my commercial work I spend a lot of time working on personal projects. At the moment I'm learning 3D modelling in Autodesk Maya and Mudbox, which is a slow process as I'm easily distracted by the familiar world of 2D. I've also begun playing around in Game Maker, a mostly coding-free tool for creating computer games. I'm enjoying making my own games, as there's enormous appeal to creating an interactive world for my characters to live in :)

I'm inspired by science, technology and space exploration and I'm hoping at some point this will manifest in my work. That hasn't really happened yet! One of my goals is to find a way to communicate science through an emotional narrative, perhaps in a comic or game. That would be very satisfying!

A Bear For Lain
I was inspired by the anime show Serial Experiments Lain, and wanted to create a companion for Lain as she's very isolated within the show.

Astral Plane
My partner and I created a small comic about two children learning to navigate their dreams. They travel aboard a strange vessel called an Astral Plane.

Bellamy And The Birds
It's about a disarming armless cat called Bellamy.

Someone Has To Water The Plants
A detail from an image called Moomin Demons and UFOs, in which aliens are nurturing and supportive. In an ideal universe anyway.

Reindeer Comic
I was listening to the Knife and in particular to a song called Reindeer. It inspired me to create a Little Red Riding Hood sequence.

Panda in the Brain
I'm not religious, but faith, hope and idealism are valuable qualities to me. In this picture I was trying to show how these qualities can help with depression.

Ginger and Stealth
Ginger is a three-legged bunny and Stealth is a half eaten ginger bread man. They were originally smudging the tree, but their feathers and sage turned into lolli-pops for the final image.

Star Belly Under My Bed
I guess this one speaks for itself.

Flying With Star Belly
And this one.

The Keepers
Wee Ted and Star Belly are Keepers charged with looking after two children. Sometimes they hang out in trees.

Guinan and her Tarcassian Razor Beast

Inspired by Guinan from Star Trek TNG. As a little girl Guinan had an imaginary friend called a Tarcassian Razor Beast. He had golden eyes and dark brown fur.
