SCOTT NELLIS

lives and works in the town by the sea which goes by the name of Brighton and graduated from the University of Brighton with a BA (Hons) in Illustration. For a while he enjoyed working predominantly with pen on paper creating insanely detailed drawings.  Gradually Scott I has developed  a mutli-coloured, mixed media approach giving my portfolio a wider range in style with psychedelic connotations.

GAVIN EDWARDS'

illustrative style is an amplification of the continuing idea’s and drawings transcribed in his sketchbooks from the most immediate responses dictated by my waking mind. A love of narrative and associated characters has driven the content of most of my work as have strong lines and bright colours.

SIMON MILLS

is an artist and illustrator living and working in Bristol, UK. His style has been referred to as ‘naive’ by some, and ‘like a child who has discovered their first crayon and is happily scribbling on the kitchen wall prior to eating said crayon’ by others. Simons work starts as a doodle on a scrap of paper, which can play havoc with the household utility bills. He find most of his characters and subjects in that first doodle. Simon is a a member of the Inky Goodness collective, and Polite Graffito.

ANDY SMITH

Andy Smith studied illustration at the Royal College of Art, London. His work combines illustration and typography to create images that have humour, energy and optimism and all are executed with a hand made, hand printed, tactile feel. Quirky characters find themselves in absurd situations, often with a large piece of lettering nearby.

JAMES REEKIE

Over the last few years James Reekie has been working extensively in the commercial illustration market, in the UK and the US, producing images for publications such as Wired, FHM and BBC Focus. With his clear black lines and evocative colours James wears his comic book and mid century life style illustration influences heavily on his carefully pressed sleeves.

JACK HAGLEY

is an Illustrator and Designer happily living in London with his glasses, face and two eyes. He is a practicing beard wielder and enjoys Local Team play Sports. His hobbies include writing about himself in the third person and watching you sleep. Broadly the limits to his artistic output are defined in these areas 1. By the ability to hold an image still enough to record it or remember it clearly 2. By personal technical limitations and the intrinsic limitations of the chosen tools themselves.

PIA AUSTIN-LITTLE

graduated from Bristol UWE where she illustrated Sylvia Plath’s “The Bell Jar.” With an interest in the human figure, handwritten fonts and textures she attempts to marry together process and subject matter, placing together juxtaposing imagery to reinstate the characters mental state. Pia works with various different materials, including latex, plaster, Perspex and metals where she manipulates these surfaces; then photographing 3d images, the end result being a 2d photograph weaved together with hand written fonts. Pia had three exhibitions displaying my work, one in Bristol, and two in London, D&AD and “Break a lead” at the Redchurch gallery in Shoreditch.
