Olympic High Jump by Ainsley Knott

Available to buy on…

This is an image I created to motivate and inspire people. It’s intended to remind people to ignore those that say it can’t be done and believe in what’s possible.

I was inspired by the 2012 games to produce this illustration.

Rarely do you see the human body twisted and contorted into such obscure positions as you do in athletics.

I’m a freelance illustrator based in Bristol, UK.

My artwork is created traditionally, using pen/pencil and then completed digitally with colours and textures to add an extra dimension. I’m inspired by everyday observations, capturing scenes or objects that would ordinarily seem mundane and bringing them to life with a different perspective, often incorporating elements of humour or quirkiness.
