Nigel Peake

The illustrator and architect, Nigel Peake, creates bright and often quirky drawings of urban and rural landscapes which provide a refreshed view of the world around us.  You will never go about your daily routines in quite the same way.

I feel like I have always drawn. Some of my earliest memories are associated with painting and the things that surround it, the plastic containers that held the primary colours and the smell from the cheap paint. When I was growing up I did not really think in terms of design or illustration I just had a wish to draw all the time. And that is still true now, I type this surrounded my paints, pens and paper… so maybe not much has changed. Drawing for me, is essentially a way of thinking through a thought or an idea, to document and try to understand what is around me.”
