Sue Gent's Profile Photo

Full of atmosphere, depth and detail, Sue Gent’s artwork is as vibrant as it is varied. Clients love her richly evocative traditional approach, as well as the professionalism she brings to every project. An experienced illustrator, graphic designer and video producer, Sue has a comprehensive understanding of the processes and requirements in both editorial and commercial projects. Among her past credits is the fantastic, award-winning promo for Radiohead’s There, There, and she regularly collaborates with some of the biggest names in publishing. Currently based in Exeter, she’s inspired by history, horror, nature and… the unexplained!

Approach

Sue expertly develops each illustration using a process of experimentation and improvement to find the most original response to the brief, rendering it in just the right style. She’ll work up an initial composition traditionally with a brush or pen and ink, before taking it digital to add colour and refine the final artwork.

Style

With a style that hints at both Art Nouveau and folklore, Sue is a classic explorer who flies in directions as varied and exciting as her influences. From illuminations to woodcuts, and from occult symbolism to 1950s flat colour printing, she’ll find the right look and feel for any project.

Client list

Sue has been commissioned by clients that include Orion Publishing Group, the BBC, Saga, Wildscreen Festival, Boneshaker, History Revealed, Quarto Publishing, Waitrose Magazine, Ernest Journal, Popshot Magazine and Marimo Magazine.
