Stuart is a Sheffield based Illustrator, Artist & Designer, working freelance and graduating from the University of Lincoln, with work based on Lincoln Cathedral.

His work is quirky, fun and has a lot of character. He grew up watching cartoons and films from all over the world, and has a love for vintage fashion and design.

When not working, he can be found wandering the streets of Sheffield taking photographs of the city and people – using 60 year old film cameras of all types and sizes.

His favourite TV show is Mad Men, as the 1960’s is his favourite era – he thinks the 50’s are pretty boss too, but things got a little looser and freer in the swinging 60’s. It’s also a golden age of design, which is often seen as superior in many ways compared to the throwaway culture and endless slew of technological upgrades. A film camera that still works 60 years later, with as much quality and more character than digital? Yes.
