Illustrator Luke Brookes grew up in a small village just outside of Birmingham; fortunate to be very close to the city but also not far away from the natural beauty of the local countryside; surroundings which have greatly influenced his work. “…taking a stroll through woodland and the lakes serve as my inspiration and have influenced my work a lot, which is very narrative driven. I cannot help creating little stories in my head about the scenes or characters I create.”
Having recently relocated to a small village in Staffordshire, the countryside continues to feature heavily in his drawings; “A lot of my work depicts scenes of nature and the beauty of a landscape. I like to include as much depth in my work as I can, so when you come back and look at it you discover a new element.
I use layered shapes and color’s to create vast worlds and scenes ranging from a snowy wilderness to fantasy wonderlands that always engage the viewer. I’ve worked with some really cool people including New Scientist Magazine, Anorak Magazine, Mammoth and Company and many more!”
