About the artist Toby Willsmer

‘Let your imagination run riot... then draw it’

What I look like

Toby is a professional illustrator with a traditional looking but digitally painted style. Born in the UK in the 70s he was heavily inspired by comics and the artwork within them. This can be seen today in his illustrations and the way he translates ideas into images. All aspects of his artwork are hand drawn and by using vivid colours, capturing movement, lighting and a dose of his humour, he makes each piece edgy and dynamic.

Toby's artistic style sits comfortably in the comics, graphic novels, books covers, album art, fantasy and sci-fi genres as well as painting the odd zombie portrait here and there. Toby has yet to add children's books to that list!
