Reynard City Original Character Design Contest


I am delighted to be judging the OC design contest for Reynard City.

Hats off to Reynard City’s writer / producer Rob Turner for creating so much more that a Saturday morning cartoon in webcomic form. is a community for like-minded creatives and children of the ’80s and ’90s to revel in glorious 2D and sequential art.

I can’t wait to see all the entries for OC design contest!

HooHappy New Year!!! I am beginning 2018 with more acrylic painting! Last year was such a wonderful rediscovery of my painting skills that I vowed to keep pursuing fine art projects and maybe one day I will have enough canvases to have an exhibition…

Hoo! the owl, with all his flaming energy, ushers in what has already been an exciting first week of 2018. I am absolutely delighted to announce that I am now a member of the Association of Illustrators. My Folio is available to view here.

People are already asking me if there will be an exhibition this year. I can confirm that I will be exhibiting my Portrait series, now eighteen years old! Art has more information about the Portraits.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments and compliments about my annual Christmas card. Every year I have to print more and I enjoy being challenged to produce these festive illustrations. Four years and counting:)

Exhibition 2018 – The Portraits

The Portraits | © Natalie Knowles 2017

It is with a mixture of trepidation and excitement that I am exhibiting the portraits in 2018. For the first time ever all fourteen hyper-realistic portraits will be presented in chronological order in one room. They will tell the story of the summer in the year 2000 when my artist studies of Goya and Anton Rafael Mengs evolved into the behemoth portraits of Peter Cushing, David Beckham and King Fahd of Saudi Arabia. There are the portraits that are studies in dot patterns and scars: Joaquin Phoenix and Kirk Douglas. There are the final portraits: Russell Crowe (2001) and George Lucas (2002), exercises in fragmentation.

The portraits are exceptional and it is my privilege to tell their story.
