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?
