Bailey Design LLC is an illustration studio located in Palm Harbor, Florida. Founded in 1994, and originally established in Southern California, Stephen Bailey has over 18 years experience as a full time freelance illustrator. With a wide variety of artistic capabilities and experiences, he is able to produce the highest standard of illustrations and professional service needed for agencies and design studios.

Stephen's passion to excel in everything he does, makes himself and his work invaluable to his clients. Graduating from the Columbus College of Art and Design in 1991 with a BFA in Illustration, Stephen soon switched over from traditional methods of painting with acrylics and airbrush to the digital media. "I still feel very strongly about pencils and the initial concept drawings, and I do these for every project." Once the pencils are approved, Stephen scans them in and brings them to life using a Wacom® tablet, digital airbrush and pen tools. Most illustrations are created with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.

Besides final illustrations, Stephen also has found that many of his clients need his skills to create comp work to present different ideas to their clients. Comps are made in the form of tight pencils with color added, or as art that is not quite final, but close enough that the client can clearly see the concept before sign off of final art.

Outside of work, Stephen is an avid fisherman and outdoors man. He is also a member of the USCG Auxiliary, a Cub Scout leader, member of the Niagara River Angler's Association, and father of two sons.
