Paul Boston studied illustration and sequential design at Brighton University. He lists his inspirations as 1950’s children’s books, antique maps and diagrams, 17th Century engravings, gothic art and Japanese prints, to name just a few. Paul creates all his artwork with his trusted ballpoint pen, which he then scans and brings to life on his computer. Paul’s charming depictions of people and places have been commissioned for global advertising campaigns, publishing projects and editorial commissions.
