So, this weeks talent spotlight is on the spectacularly gifted illustrator Tobias Hall!
Tobias' journey into illustration really began when he took an art and design foundation course which allowed to really explore the way in which he wanted to work, before going on to study illustration at Coventry University. Initially inspired by the work of artist David Foldvari, Tobias began introducing different elements of his own which has eventually led to his current unique style.
Upon graduation and displaying his work at the New Designers exhibition, he was asked by the design team at Zizzi Restaurants to paint a mural for the Earls Court branch. He is now part of their design team, working as an illustrator, designer, photographer and even occasionally as art director! The rest of the time Tobias works freelance as an illustrator.
Take a few minutes and head on over to his website www.tobias-hall.co.uk and check out the masses of his work on the site, which include his work for Zizzi's and Popshot Magazine plus many editorial pieces!
