SHJ – My New Studio


Having just moved into a new studio, I wonder what other peoples studios are like? Mine is a mess, full of clutter and nonsense that I try to include in my work. It’s all has personal meaning to me of course, but others who see it wonder how on earth I work with so much noise around me.

Since the age of 5, I've always been seen with a pencil in my hand, frantically scribbling down what is in my head. My inspiration comes in many forms, from 1950's poster art to the quirky Japanese characters used to promote the simplest of products. I try to keep my ideas timeless, grounded in the iconic symbols of a timeless era. In the world of illustration, I guess anything goes, because thats the point of it - to communicate an idea in an easily remembered original way. I generally uses 2B, 4B, 6B and 9B graphite pencils and textured paper, adding digital colour to my work, making it the perfect medium for print, advertising and online usage.

  1. I wish my studio looked like this! Most of the time it tends to look like Starbucks. 🙁
