David Hughes

Standard

David studied at Twickenham College of Technology, before becoming a freelance illustrator at the age of twenty in between dabbling with the postal service, TV graphics, oh and road sweeping. Along came a job from the Observer and so started a life of commissioned illustration and authorial work which today is best exemplified by his own darkly wonderful book, Walking the Dog.

David Hughes, born in Twickenham describes himself as “a graphic designer who happens to illustrate.” Expressing the desire to become an artist from a young age, he studied at Twickenham Technical College in the early 1970s, completing a four-year course on (largely technical) Illustration. Towards the very end of his course, he discovering an interest in etching and produced “a small series of etchings based on a piece of jazz by Charlie Parker.”

I like the graphical aspect of David’s illustration, it’s something I have rarely seen and I think it works well.
