James Grover - Exeter, United Kingdom based illustrator

Based in Exeter, James Grover is an illustrator whose work comes in various sizes. It occupies the walls of restaurants as well as books and magazines. Growing up in Nottinghamshire, he learned to draw from his grandmother. Outside of his artwork, he plays football, goes running, surfs in the morning and if he has any time left he might also challenge you to a game of table tennis.

Training

After taking a foundation course in art and design, James got a first in Illustration at the University of Lincoln. He became a graphic designer, taking illustration commissions on the side, and then took the plunge to become a full-time illustrator in 2011.

Approach

James starts his work in pencil, applying his colours digitally. He likes to maintain a handmade feel to his illustrations, and adds textures to what he’s drawn for further richness. His Mac helps him work to tight deadlines, while maintaining a high level of detail in each piece. His mural projects, meanwhile, are undertaken using paint pens and emulsion.

Style

Patterns and detail are important elements in James’s style. His line work has a slightly naïve feel to it and, working digitally, he adds depth to images by including extra elements, even if they’re small and subtle. His collection of books about fossils, birds and plants feeds his interest in patterns and textures.
