From humble beginnings to world domination
– that is the illustrated vision of Paul Loudon. Born in 1977
in Leigh near Wigan and residing in North Manchester, Paul lives
and breathes a world of cartoon-like fantasy.
With creative weapons fully engaged, Paul
brings to you a little slice of artistic heaven with images
that veer from twisted to humour laden to flights of fantasy.
Graduating from Salford University with a
graphic design degree in 2004, a course he undertook purely
to contemporise his illustration work, Paul has subsequently
garnered commissions in children’s books, poster design and
nightclub flyers to name but a few.
However, as Paul says:
“It’s my stand alone art that
bears the brunt of my self expression and creativity, and
it is this work which I hold most dear”.
Paul has recently discovered that many of
his computer rendered drawings and characters translate wonderfully
into large scale wall murals and what would be a collection
canvases, if only his family and friends wouldn’t keep grabbing
Question his sanity of course, but let his
creativity speak for itself.
Paul has also been heard on BBC GMR in a
studio interview talking about his life and career as an illustrator
and purveyor of comic book art.
