Jamie Coe - London, United Kingdom based illustrator

London, United Kingdom
Visual storytelling in an exciting and accessible comic art style is the forte of the London-based illustrator and animator Jamie Coe. Working with some of the biggest names in broadcasting, publishing and in the world of comics, he’s an expert when it comes to helping brands tell their stories in unique and impactful ways.
Comic art has always been part of Jamie’s creative DNA, with key influences including Charles Burns, Daniel Clowes and Jamie Hewlett. He developed his drawing skills as a teenager, honing them further during his Illustration degree at Central Saint Martins before publishing his first graphic novel through Nobrow in 2014. As well as the versatility of his drawing style, clients love the way Jamie puts everything into his work, offering ideas and solutions and communicating well throughout every project. He’s also a talented storyboard artist.

Approach

For Jamie, images begin as thumbnails, knowing that if a composition works at a small scale it will be effective at any size. He typically uses pencils and inks to begin his drawings, colouring and editing them digitally. His palette is bold and dramatic, using warm and cold colour combinations to build atmosphere.

Style

Colourful, atmospheric and expressive, Jamie will adapt the style of his work to fit his brief. Character illustration is a specialty, bringing emotion to the narrative through facial expressions, posture and composition.

Client list

Jamie’s clients include The New Yorker, DC Comics, ESPN, the BBC, Billboard, Birds Eye, The Telegraph Magazine, No Brow, Hollywood Reporter and more.
