Joshua Pell is an illustrator based in Leeds.
Through constant practice in location and life drawing he has developed a solid figurative technique that's grounded in reality- whilst maintaining a touch of the absurd.
His work often finds a strong connection with music in different cultures and attempts to create imagery which replicates the charisma and thrill of great performance.
His work is energetic, bold and with a particular interest in the power of concurrent imagery, he has a natural affinity with flyer, poster and album cover design.
