Hello, I’m Jonny, a Lecturer on BA (Hons) Illustration predominantly working with Level 4 students. I am an illustrator, musician and educator. I have worked at Leeds Arts University since 2014 and have previously worked as a Lecturer and Pathway Leader on the Foundation Diploma in Art & Design.
My personal illustration practice is focussed around experiential research through walking and the translation of a holistic experience to a visual narrative. My practice sits loosely within the practical fields of abstract comics, collage and printmaking which is supported by active play and experimentation. This personal practice is underpinned by an interest in the political history and philosophy surrounding walking and our right to roam. My commercial practice usually operates within the music industry with clients including: Domino Recording Company, Trouble in Mind Records, Sonic Cathedral Records and Camden Town Brewery.
My teaching and illustration practices have been informed through research and studies completed as part of the MA Creative Practice at Leeds Arts University and PGCE in Lifelong Learning through the University of Huddersfield.
