International freelance fine artist and illustrator based in Lincoln, England.
I graduated from the University of Lincoln in 2008 BA (hons) Fine Art & Illustration, and am available for commissions.
I work in a variety of mediums to produce new work based on my research, which has conflated theories between Jean Baudrillard, Borges, Dostoyevsky, Philip K. Dick, Gaston Bachelard.
I’ve exhibited work in Lincoln, Norway, London, Nottingham, Berlin, St. Louis, Brighton, Italy and Yorkshire.
As an illustrator I possess a range of visual styles with which to express a narrative, or to illustrate an article or story, unique hand crafted greetings card designs, prints etc.
My professional illustration for editorial, music industry, and advertising commissions, and conceptual Fine Art work can be viewed at www.helendblackbird.co.uk
My blog is http://helend-blackbird.blogspot.com/ for Fine Art.

I saw this brief on Don’t Panic, and of course my style suited the subject matter, so I created an inspired poster design for Norwegian Wood: / http://www.dontpaniconline.com//designbrief/norwegian_wood/entry/1155 / Please vote for it because then it’ll be displayed at Curzon in London :-) / PRETTY PLEASE!!!
I’m holding a stall at the Engine Shed, Lincoln, in May, for fans of my work: / http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=152552828126434 / I’m hoping this will be more successful than last year’s Artist’s Markets, which in the end became an exercise in consumerist critique rather than actually making any profits.
