Now, For Those of a More Serious Nature:

The Cartoonist- Curly Moustache no longer supplied

The Cartoonist of B & N Creations has been providing illustrations, fine artwork and cartoons for nearly two decades now.
We understand and value the expectations of a varied clientele, both private and corporate and we taper our pricing to fit your budget.

Our work is an amalgam
of tradition and technology.

Our artist draws by hand to the tablet: it’s digitised and ready for print, web or wherever your final destination might be.

B & N Creations are based in Christchurch, New Zealand. A good placement:
The Christchurch giant CERA (Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority) named us their “Preferred Supplier.”

This Cartoonist named "Preferred Supplier" of Medical Adventure.

Statistics: We’re The HEALTHY option…

The former CDHB (Canterbury District Health Board) comes to our artist to spice up their Presentations, Posters and Staff Training resources.
We also supply illustrated artwork to the Canterbury Clinical Network, the South Island Health Alliance and the West Coast District Health Board… To the far North Island we’ve supplied commissions to the NDHB (Northland District Health), and crafted work for the Health Department in Tasmania. Most recently we’ve illustrated infographics for the Welsh NHS and for the UN.

Our illustrator has painted posters for Regenerate Christchurch after the quakes and customised cartoons in training posters for the Christchurch City Council. We’re eminently adept at art for websites and books and have album covers in America*…

The Cartoonist  produces numerous company avatars for social media and tops their year off with personalised Christmas Cards.

What ELSE might an illustrator do for you?

Cartoon Logo for Cash Cow finances

•Illustrated logos are more visually appealing than traditional logos and they bring greater recognition to your brand.

•A mascot captures the personality of your business.

•A caricature of the team rewards both the staff and boss… a memorable birthday gift.

•Train your staff and educate clientele with our infographics, either static or with animation.

Animated video speaks brilliantly for itself. Whether for advertising, seminars or corporate presentations… It’s an infographic with motion.

In conclusion?

Cartoon Coffee, a potent brew.
(Though it’s better warm.)

A good cartoonist has more uses than a mad scientist has cold coffees.

For inspiration have a browse through the gallery and the descriptions on “our services” page.
