Hello, and welcome to my site. I’m Murray Ewing, and I create digital art and illustration.
I like my work to combine imagination — whether it’s a fairy-tale sense of wonder, the dangerous edge of faerie, or the opti/pessi/mism of science fiction — with a more down-to-earth humanity, characters who feel real, with real reactions and real emotions, and with a genuine sense of individuality and dignity.
I like to bring a sense of playfulness and humour to what I do, and aim for a balance between cartoonish liveliness and an involving realism to make my pictures feel like they’re telling a story.
Have a look, and do contact me if you’d like a quote, or have a query.
I create full-colour artwork for a variety of purposes, including book and album covers. I also enjoy designing title lettering. See the gallery page for more.
I was thrilled to win the Book Designer.com e-Book Cover Design Awards, Non-Fiction category, April 2019, for my cover art and design for Story Sense for Writers. You can find out more about Story Sense here.
