    Vector illustrator and designer...

    Cartoons, characters, graphic & logo design and so much more!

    Welcome to the Ant Creations blog and website

    Hello! As you've hopefully deduced from the title above, this site is dedicated to showcase my work on the world wide web and also explain a little about the kind of illustration and design that I create. My name is Nathan Shelton and I have been drawing and doodling cartoons as long as I can remember! I have a passion for creating funky artwork, cool characters, unique illustration and great design in general! I've been running Ant Creations the business since I started illustrating professionally in the year 2000, and am now based in Market Harborough, Leicester in the UK. Anyway enough with the reading, have a look around, check out my blog below and my work throughout the site, and if you need to get in touch I would love to hear from you. Kick back, relax and give your eyes a treat. Enjoy!

    British and Irish Lions rugby playing lion on the charge

    The British and Irish Lions have started their tour of Australia. I'm obviously biased, but it's great to see so many of the squad are made up of Welsh rugby players! I feel the Lions are in with a real chance of doing extremely well on the tour this time. So, to celebrate here's a new illustration depicting a rugby playing lion in full flight. Enjoy!

    This illustration is available to buy in my iStock portolio

    Ant Creations and Tigers Family appearing in the Harborough Mail newspaper!

    Here's a little piece that appeared in the Harborugh Mail this week. It's a screen grab from their website so here's a link to the actual site if you would like to read it, like it or share it from their site.

    A few little bits of info not 100% accurate but hey ho, that's the nature of being in the press! And before you ask yes that's my office and yes the walls are shocking, bright pink! They help me wake up in the morning :) Enjoy!

    Same Day Sam Character Design

    Say hello to Sam. Same Day Sam is a character newly created to promote a plumbing company based in Pennsylvania in the US. He's going to be used to sell the fast, reliable and simply 'super' service that the company provide, and therefore the superhero theme seemed to fit the bill. I've added a few early sketches in the portfolio section so be sure to check them out if you get the chance. Enjoy!

    New Logo Design for Bibo - Drinks For Events

    Here are several versions of the new Bibo logo recently created for the Kibworth based drinks for events, hire company. The basic 'Bibo' in the glass design is used throughout the branding, but the text and layout will change for the different ways the logo will be used. The logo can be used portrait or landscape and as a single colour. If you see it out and about then I would love to know about it. Enjoy!
