My name is Rachel Alderson, I am a freelance illustrator and character designer, with a passion for characters and creatures. I HAVE WORKED ON commissions for various clients such as VIDEO game studios, esports, CLOTHING BRANDS and editorial. I HAVE ALSO WORKED WITH A NUMBER OF YOUTUBE CREATORS AND TWITCH STREAMERS CREATING ART FOR THEIR CHANNELS WHICH IS SOMETHING THAT I REALLY ENJOY. IF YOU'D LIKE TO CONTACT ME ABOUT A PROJECT, HEAD ON OVER TO MY CONTACT PAGE OR FEEL FREE TO GET IN TOUCH WITH ME THROUGH ONE OF MY SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNELS, LINKS FOR WHICH ARE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS WEBSITE.
I run my own clothing brand, Monster Trunk Collectables, where I focus on giving the customer a fun, exciting experience. Every product is limited edition and hand finished by me in my studio, helping to make each product more of a collectable rather than 'just a t-shirt'.

"I was looking for a fresh, exciting piece for my nerdy metal trivia brand, and I came across the work of Rachel Alderson. We discussed the background of the project, and the overall vibe of Skull Toaster, and she gave me some ideas which aligned perfectly with everything I was looking for. She kept me in the loop over the course of the project, was clear and to the point every step of the way, and delivered the final piece on time. I’d highly recommend Rachel to anyone looking for a lightning bolt of awesome!"
