WOW – Illustrator Owen Davey

The life of an illustrator can sometimes get a little isolated and lonely, but there’s nothing in the job description that says you have to work alone on a desk in an office space. Sometimes, it’s great to get out of the house and work somewhere else. I’ve created work on holiday in Prague, I’ve researched images in cafés in the middle of nowhere and for 3 weeks I’m on tour with my friends’ amazing band, Tall Ships, working on the road.

I admit that it’s less productive, but it’s a hell of a lot more fun, and it can really inspire you. This week I’ve met some awesome people, completed two final images, traveled all over the country, updated my website, been given some delicious free cupcakes, worked on my new picture book, met many funny dogs, been offered a job by a new friend and slept in some very odd positions.

Illustration is a mobile job, so get out of the office and go somewhere new and interesting.
