Jonathan’s past experience an art director commissioning illustration means he fully understands what’s important to his clients and the processes they follow. He has a BA Hons in Illustration & Photography from the Edinburgh College of Art, along with an MDes in Illustration. Some of his influences include Vincent Van Gogh, Louise Borgeois, Hergé, Chester Brown, Daniel Clowes, Shaun Tan, Adrian Tomine and Marian Bantjes.
His work has featured in American Illustration, Le Book and the AOI’s Images publication.
Drawing using his touch sensitive Wacom Cintiq display, Jonathan then colors and finishes his illustrations in Adobe Photoshop.
Jonathan creates lively, colorful, line-based artwork with a modern, accessible feel and, usually, a touch of humor. His work is clear, figurative and easy to connect with.
