Graeme Neil Reid: Walking on the Moon

Graeme is a freelance illustrator based in Edinburgh, Scotland, mostly known for comic work for various publishers including Image Comics and Caliber Comics. He’s also worked in the advertising and marketing industry for over 15 years. Working with both traditional tools and computer software such as Photoshop, Painter and Illustrator, Graeme is probably best known for his strong ink line and computer colouring – but he’s also happy to get his hands dirty with oil paints when needed!

His illustration will soon join our “Moon Landing 40th Anniversary: A Comics Celebration” – a gallery of illustrations and comic art inspired by space exploration – which includes art by Martin Baines, Nick Abadzis, Colin Howard, Mike Nicoll and others.

On today, the actual anniversary of the landing, our thanks to everyone who found time to contribute in their busy schedules so far!
