Paul Willoughby

"Paul graduated from Loughborough in 2001 with a 2:2 in Illustration. After an impressive run on job seekers allowance he began illustrating for Adrenalin magazine. On the strength of that work they gave him some commissions for their sister magazine, a golf magazine called Bogey. Then on the strength of that work he got to illustrate some covers for the Guardian’s review section. It all grew from there!"

What a great list of inspiration and influences he has:- "Polish poster design, early Milton Glaser drawings, Saul Bass, Cuban poster art, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Diane Arbus, Roger Ballen, Geoff McFetridge, David Hughes, Japanese woodblock prints, Hokusai, old photographs, Paper textures, Seymor Chwast, William Eggleston, Robert Crumb, Egon Schiele, David Hockney, Alan Cober, Eduardo Paolozzi, Kew Gardens, Terence Malick, knackered old craft books, Kurosawa, Manga, cake, Lomo’s"
