James Weston Lewis
James Weston Lewis graduated in 2007 from the University of the West of England, where he focused on woodcut and linocut printmaking.
His background in this area has a heavy influence on his illustration, informing the textures, layering, and limited colour palettes of his work, which combine simple block colours with intricate detail. He now works using a combination of traditional techniques and digital media, and takes his inspiration from a wide range of sources, including 1930’s printmaking, mid-century children’s comics, architecture, horticulture, literature and history.
James has recently completed his first Children’s book, The Great Fire of London, and has worked for a range of clients, including The Sunday Times, Hachette, Medium, The Ivy, Outside magazine, Slightly Foxed Quarterly, The Oxford American Magazine, Hüman After All, and Wild Things publishing.
