Marc Pattenden

Marc Pattenden

Marc is a self-taught illustrator from Lewes, East Sussex. As a child he drew endlessly, but it wasn't until his son was born that he rediscovered his love of doodling – both as a way to entertain his son, and as a source of entertainment for himself! Marc has since graduated from doodling and now works full time as an illustrator (although he would argue that there is very little difference between his doodling days and his present practice). He spends much of his time (fueled on strong tea) drawing silly pictures containing forlorn looking yetis, giant purple robots and the like. Marc works digitally with the aim of creating colourful engaging work, full of texture and atmosphere. He finds inspiration in gallery shows, museums, books, and funny things his 3 year old says (he was talking about flying jellyfish recently, which Marc feels he should definitely draw). Marc always finds the process of illustration a totally joyful experience and is very glad to have made a career out of it. He hopes to be drawing daft pictures for many years to come. View Full Bio
