Jim Medway


Jim Medway is behind the illustrations to Bodelwyddan Castle’s revamp.



I loved these illustrations when I seen them and had to find out who was behind them! The style reminded me of Quentin Blake where he has used his own illustrative style to show his interpretation of people, objects and buildings which is fun and child like. I also like the idea of using a very minimal color palette and keeping some of the illustrations colorless.

So who is he?

Jim Medway is an image maker and educator, based in Manchester. He has exhibited across the UK and beyond, with work in the Art Council collection and Government Art Collection. This spring sees the release of his first Graphic Novel ‘Playing Out’, from Blank Slate Books, and he’s also drawing ‘Sgt. Chip Charlton and Mr Woofles of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police’ for the Phoenix Comic.
