Jacob Courtney's picture


I am an Illustrator recently graduated from Cardiff Metropolitan University/Cardiff School of Art and Design with a First Class degree in BA (Hons) Illustration.

I am passionate about drawing and painting, with an interest in narratives and sequences. My work is usually intricate, detailed, and usually realistic. I most often work around themes of urban areas, the relationship with urban areas and people, vacant spaces, industrialisation, history, conflict and mystery.

My key influences include illustrators and artists such as Shaun Tan, Georges Seurat and Bill Bragg. In my work I want to create exciting and engaging worlds and scenes that the viewer can immerse themselves into.

In addition to this I have an interest in music. I am a grade 8 drummer and sometimes practice in a band.
