Peter Bellingham specialises in commercial illustration, cartoons and caricatures.
He works mainly for advertising and marketing agencies, creating images that cannot be captured by photography or other means. These images may be used in advertising or promotion; for print or web use. He also creates storyboards to illustrate how a potential television ad or animated presentation will look.
Working with publishers he creates images for books on a wide range of subjects. He has also written, illustrated and self-published a graphic novel for teenagers: ‘The Puzzling Cases of D. Cypher,’ which is available to purchase from Broad Canvas.
Under the pen-name Scooter McKenzie he creates cartoon images, characters or mascots for promotional and advertising use. He also submits topical cartoons to Cartoonstock, the world’s premier cartoon agency for immediate use in publications anywhere in the world.
Drawing pens, colour markers, conté sticks and Adobe Illustrator.
2010: ‘Art & Artists of Abingdon’ where his prints shared exhibition space with those of Constable and Turner.
2010: Guest Of Honour at the 56th exhibition by the Société Académique D’Argentan & De L’Orne in Normandy.
‘Scooter McKenzie’ runs Cartooning Workshops for all ages. Groups as diverse as the Scouts, the Women’s Institute, local art societies, museums, business networking groups, The Oxford Art Movement (Christ Church College) and Mensa (the High I.Q. Society) have all played host to these workshops where he gives a humorous illustrated talk about his work as a cartoonist and tuition on how to create unique comic characters.
