HEY! LET’S GET TO KNOW YOU A LITTLE BETTER. INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND TELL US MORE ABOUT YOU AS AN ARTIST
I’m Eddy! A freelance illustrator and graphic designer based in Leeds. I live with my partner Lewis and our big barrel of a child Rusky (An English Bull Terrier). I love all things retro, especially 70s counterculture which most of my work is inspired from!
If you could describe your collection in 3 words what would they be?
Retro, funky and colourful.
What does a day in the life look like for you?
I’d like to say I wake up super early but I definitely don’t. I normally wake up late, rush out of bed and run to the studio. I then start sketching straight away and do creative work in the morning as I find this is when I have the most ideas and energy. I tend to start doing more admin and social media work in the afternoon. Between all of this is a lot of procrastination and scrolling on my phone!
What’s a fun fact about you that you think would surprise people?
I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Anyone who knows me knows I wouldn’t hurt a fly!
What’s your favourite design from the collection and why?
Any of the psychedelic mushroom themed designs, I love a 70s retro themed illustration and my collection is full of them.
