Artist of the week: Spencer Wilson

With all the events of the last couple of weeks, I've let the Artist of the week feature slide. So here we are back again with Spencer Wilson in the spotlight!

Wish by Spencer Wilson

Spencer Wilson is a London based illustrator and co-founder of the illustration, design and animation company Peepshow Collective Ltd. He has been working to commission since 1998 in a world of neat piles of mess, coffee cups and ordered chaos.

His work follows this theme with the creation of sketchy ideas and twisted thoughts, carried through into clean vectored, balanced images placed in dynamic flat colour compositions with the occasional introduction of texture. He’s also a father to two fantastic girls who never cease to inspire him.

Spencer has an extensive client base, with examples of his work seen gracing the advertising billboards in London and across Europe, animated on TV screens, popping up on the web, adding a dash of humour to the weekend / daily newspaper supplements, monthly glossies and very rarely hanging in neat, white spaces in frames. Spencer has recently returned to his love of printmaking after a long hiatus, creating simple images on his table top press.
