Francis BlakeFrancis Blake has been an illustrator for as long as he can remember, and his artwork appears in magazines, books and advertising campaigns across North America and Europe, as well as the Far East.

His original paintings and drawings are in private collections as far apart as Melbourne, Toronto and Wigan.

Through the medium of ink and water-colour, his illustrations employ a subtle line, augmented by intoxicating flourishes of colour. The apparent simplicity of his work belies a considerable technical ability.

Francis’ pictures can be darkly satirical or warm and personable, but are always informed by a sharp wit.
