About

Training


Peter has a first class bachelors degree in Graphic Design from Liverpool John Moores University, and an MA in Book Arts from Aberystwyth.

Approach


Though he works digitally, Peter draws on his training using traditional media including lino-cutting, stenciling, letterpress and drawing. “I colour in pencil outlines in Illustrator using vectors to create colour shapes, like cutting out stencils with a knife,” he says. “Similarly my drawing is simplified like lino-cut and wood-cut lines.”

Style


Peter’s simplified drawing style often has the look and feel of a classic newspaper cartoon, but his images tend to have a lot more to them than that. He uses colour to give them a strong graphic character, and lots of observational humour can be found in the little characters and details he ads. They can contain plenty of information too – often his illustrations are like a mixture between cartoons and infographics.
