17th March 2007 was the day Gurr Illustration officially started. I had been a freelance illustrator for twelve years before that, but always with my wife Julia helping me behind the scenes. Becoming a partnership was a way of formally recognising her contribution, both creatively and on the business side.
The last five years haven’t always been easy, but they have been interesting and incredibly rewarding. Below is the first Gurr Illustration illustration, followed by whatever was on the drawing table on each subsequent birthday.
A huge thank you to all the friends, clients and suppliers who have supported us over the last half a decade.
