I’m Dawn Monks, professional military artist/illustrator.
My black and white work is achieved using the finest of fine 0.1 nibs to produce highly detailed artworks in my own distinctive style. More recently I’ve been perfecting the use of coloured acrylic inks using a dip pen and brush and I have to say that I’m really happy with the results!
Clients include History of War magazine, Pen & Sword Books and Helion Books, as well as many private commissions.
I’m never happier than when up to my eyeballs in wheels, gears, levers, struts, rivets… from an ink-on-paper perspective, at least. I used to repair – and draw – the internal workings of clocks, so that might have something to do with it…
I’m always happy to chat about art projects. If there’s something that you think you’d like me to draw – even if it’s only a vague idea – you can contact me here
