'Illustration student at the Edinburgh College of Art. A metaphorical nuclear fusion reactor for strange things and happy colours.'
'I'm a Glasgow School of Art painting and printmaking graduate who works in illustration, when I'm not taking part in a spot of soul-crushing bartending.'
'Sarah is an illustrator working in Edinburgh that loves all things colourful. She is currently setting up a risograph printing business under the name Gutter Press. Her design is a comment on our crap year, but with less of the doom and gloom we've been hearing about, although she's still sure Bowie was the one responsible for the world's more stable equilibrium.'
'I'm Jake and I'm a London based illustrator and printmaker. I enjoy building my images as though they were a print, using overlapping layers of colour. My style combines organic shapes, graphic elements and textures collaged together to create a final image. I take inspiration from documentaries, nature & world news. My favourite things are frosty mornings, Spotify and The World Cup.'
