The Dandy Dons is the work of Copenhagen based graphic designer, web designer and illustrator Iain Cameron.
Iain is an Aberdonian and passionate Dandy. The website and social media pages have evolved over the last couple of years as an online sketchbook for developing illustration and design techniques, creating memes and posters and writing occasional blog articles.
And now it is also a shop. (any day now). As an artist I want my work to look at it’s best, so I do my best to make the merchandise the best quality products available, from the best printer.
What I produce won’t be for everyone, it is occasionally a bit silly or stupid, but I design for me, then hope others will like it.
Fourth best artist on The Northern Light fanzine. 1989-1992
Poured a pint for Johnny Hewitt. 1989
P&J layouter and cartoonist. 1990-1993 back when it sold 105,000 per day and had an estimated readership of 210,000 per day. Considerably less since my cartoons stopped. Coincidence?
Worked for When Saturday Comes for a bit. 1994-1995
Did a few illustrations for Aberdeen FC when Ebbe was manager. Then FC Copenhagen while Roy Hodgson was manager.
After a number of years working in Copenhagen design companies, now a freelance designer and illustrator. Working for a variety of businesses large and small all over the world. I work on designing websites, logos, branding, advertising and illustration projects.
