Hollie Fuller

I’m Hollie Fuller, a 22-year-old illustrator currently based in Leeds, where I have, just about, finished my degree in illustration at Leeds Arts University.

I like to create work that’s playful and relatable and a bit silly. I’m inspired by the mundane and the everyday. My drawings focus around character and narrative, often encapsulating those dull or unnoticed moments in a lighthearted, humorous way. I always try to make things that are personal and positive. If I can make at least one person smile at a drawing I’ve done then I feel like I’ve succeeded in some way.

My most recent project is a book about a cowboy called Colin and a journey he takes using various different modes of transport. It was inspired by some illustrations I made earlier this year about using public transport to reduce your carbon footprint. I wanted to focus on this as a positive change, as I know that public transport has so many negative connotations.

I’m looking forward to what the future might bring!

Joe Taylor

I’m a freelance illustrator and designer from England now based in Berlin.

I studied graphic design at university and after graduating, got a job at a design agency in London. After two years I realised it wasn’t what I wanted to do, so I left with no real idea of what to do next. Luckily, I had picked up some after effects skills on the way and I used these to survive as a freelancer while developing my illustration style.  

I moved to Berlin in order to find the right balance between personal and commercial work. I found in London that the cost of living was so high it didn’t leave much space for me to explore and experiment. There is a calmer atmosphere here and that really helps me to get immersed in my ideas.

In Berlin, I also work as part of the Random Collective. It’s amazing having a sense of community with other freelance creatives after working at home for more than a year. It’s also great being able to get feedback on your projects and there is always the chance for collaboration which is exciting.

My goal for the future is simply to maintain a generous space for my personal work. And never to think of creativity as just a way to earn money.
