Martin Hargreaves - International pastiche illustrator. UK

History and humour are perfectly married in the illustrations of British artist Martin Hargreaves, and thanks to his versatility he creates everything from pastiche images mimicking the great masters to fantastical beasts and still life paintings. His unique skills have attracted clients in advertising, children’s books, magazines and newspapers, and even at Hampton Court Palace.
Martin’s greatest inspiration comes from classical painters like Hogarth, Holbein, Rembrandt and Piazzetta. In fact, he says that if he could travel back in time he would visit the 18th century, and alongside his love of Renaissance artwork he also enjoys classical music. Martin works from a shed in his garden, with large windows through which he can see apple trees and the rolling hills of East Sussex. He has a BA Illustration from Brighton Polytechnic (now Brighton University).

Approach

Martin works in traditional media – oil paints, watercolour, pen and ink – but is also adept at making changes digitally as required. The 2B pencil is his all-time favourite art tool.

Styles

A master of pastiche art, Martin is capable of replicating any classic style you can think of, in a way that suits the brief.

Client list

Martin’s clients include English Heritage, Historic Royal Palaces, GQ Magazine, Jersey Post Office, Esquire Magazine, BBC Good Food magazine, Forever Sports Magazine, Yankee Magazine and Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership.

Just thought I would let you know that the editor thinks your illustration is wonderful ... as do we all
Martin Lovelock - Art Director, 1843 Magazine
Martin and Illustration have been a pleasure to work with from day one. From quoting to handling proofs, the whole process has been enjoyable, creative, swift and professional. It's been a challenging project, but we are all delighted with the results. The client is over the moon.
Kate Pettitt - Creative Director, Bivouac - York
I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your quick & impressive work on the Gnu illustration work you did for us last month. We all loved it and the product will be getting launched within the next month, so I'll keep you both posted there too. Everything about this commission was handled extremely efficiently and it was a pleasure working with you both — I just hope to get the opportunity to again within the near future.
