Books, buildings, and beyond. A journey to discover stories and places where stories can be found and the ways between them. As an author and artist, I have a personal project to illustrate my way around the country of independent bookshops, and the landmarks and landscapes I discover on my way.
Derbyshire born, Suffolk bred. I’m Thomas and I now live in Oxfordshire. My two main inspirations are the work of Edward Ardizzone and Rex Whistler, and my style is somewhere between the two. I work principally in Indian Ink and Polychromos artists’ pencils, occasionally adapting these as etchings. I take commissions, including maps and book illustration.
