Keep experimenting with your work at any opportunity whether it be on commissioned projects or self-initiated. It’s easy to get pigeon holed and before you know it you are asked for the same kind of image over and over which takes the fun and creativity away.
Steven Wilson is an Illustrator who lives and works in Brighton, UK. Originally from North London Steven fell in love with Brighton’s tendency to attract the weird and wonderful whilst studying on the renowned Illustration course there. He can often be found foraging through the local flea markets for obscure books and discarded paraphernalia to use as inspiration. Circus posters, fairgrounds, Victorian postcards and tribal body art are amongst the themes he cites as reference for his varied and experimental work which he generalizes as ‘somewhere between pop and psychedelia’. His working processes are as eclectic as his influences. Pen, pencil, paint, collage and even play-doh are combined with contemporary tools like Photoshop and Illustrator to create his work.
