Artist feature - Oscar Price Jun 04 2016Latest signings
And yet another great new artist! We're so happy at Advocate we signed Oscar Price, as we feel he brings a lot to the table. With his outstanding use of colour and his quirky style, he'd be great for 5 years to young adult. If you're as just a big of a fan of his work as we are, head over to his Advocate portfolio to see more!
"Hello! My name is Oscar Price and I’m an illustrator from Nottingham. I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember – I’m still very proud of the five-legged cow I painted when I was three (it now hangs on my mum’s wall in a gold frame). I love making pictures with lots of atmosphere and a strong sense of place, and my favourite thing to draw is people (including frog-people and aliens).
I’m inspired by nature, by space and stars, by snuggling up in front of the fire with a mug of hot chocolate, by big coats and scarves, by wizards and magic, by my three fat cats, and by anything that sparks my imagination. I work traditionally, most of the time, with a dip pen and ink and watercolour, and I’m always scribbling ideas in the tiny sketchbooks I carry with me."
