The Skinny Showcase: Edward McGowan

Gallery | 08 Dec 2008

Edward McGowan grew up in the Kingdom of Fife and spent most of his youth reading comics, riding his bike and drawing monsters. He graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2006 and briefly worked as a graphic designer before making the jump into freelance illustration earlier this year. His work can best be described as digital silk-screening. Taking influences from various sources he creates mostly digital work for commercial clients and prefers to use traditional methods for his personal work. Since graduating his work has been published internationally in publications like the New York Times, Business Week, The Times, Research World and Canadian Business. He currently works out of his studio at the Owl & Lion Gallery which he co-founded in November 2007 with bookbinder Isabelle Ting. Edward spends his days drawing, listening to Jim Morrison, and drinking copious amounts of Moroccan coffee. He hopes to live in San Francisco one day.
