I'm interested in reportage, observation of people and real-life events, and imaginative work. Please contact me to discuss possible commissions and collaborations.
"We commissioned Ian Long to draw the writers and translators appearing at the day-long European Literature Night celebrations at the British Library. His work more than exceeded our expectations and he produced elegant and characterful drawings, some of which included key quotations from the artists.
His style is unique and some of the artwork was then watercoloured after the event to produce a haunting effect. His work from ELN has appeared on many websites since and many of the writers were thrilled with Ian’s interpretation of their words."
Sarah Sanders, Speaking Volumes
"What a delightful addition to our work championing international literature in the UK to have Ian Long’s witty, original and artistic drawings on our website complementing our author biographies and blogs."
Rosie Goldsmith, European Literature Network
