ABOUT ME


Professional illustrator and artist from UK.

Illustrator of New York Times Bestseller, and Specsaver’s National Book Award 2018 Winner, ‘Stories For Boys Who Dare To Be Different’, by Ben Brooks (Quercus Books).

Also colourist for 2017 Eisner Award nominated 'Clean Room' (DCVertigo Comics).


I am a highly experienced and creative illustrator, designer, and animator. I thrive on the creative spark of generating ideas and collaboration.


Having managed my own freelance illustration business for more than ten years, I pride myself on my ability to deliver creativity, imagination and technical skill with a consistent drive for the highest standards.


I am a versatile and creative team worker who is comfortable both developing ideas and briefs with clients and providing art direction and technical guidance to colleagues.

In addition to my working practice I teach Illustration and Narrative Art workshops to art students and the general public.


I live with my family by the sea somewhere in Kent.

TESTIMONIALS


‘Working with Quinton on Stories For Boys Who Dare To Be Different, Stories For Kids Who Dare To Be Different and Stories for Boys Who Dare To Be Different 2 has been a total joy. He has shown incredible imagination, remarkable speed and great sensitivity. I love how he has chosen to represent all these ground-breaking boys and girls in a way that is visually intriguing and engaging. He is also a magician with colours. I can’t recommend him enough.’

 

Katy Follain, Non-Fiction Publisher, Quercus



Quinton is one of the most versatile, talented and intuitive illustrators on the planet.

His illustrations for the Gogglebox book captured the humour and essence of our cast perfectly. As well as being hugely talented, he's an absolute pleasure to work with... and very modest with it.


Tania Alexander, Creator and Executive Producer of Gogglebox



Quinton’s colors are clean, thoughtful and considered, taking in both the mood of the moment and matching the style of the story. He’s a delight to work with and I recommend his talents to anyone.


Molly Mahan, Editor, DCVertigo Comics



Quinton did a brilliant job of illustrating our award-winning column for many years. Since then I have continued to commission him for a variety of successful projects.


Anamaria Stanley, Studio Manager, Time Out



From Tom Waits beating the hell out of defenceless donkeys for Mule Variations via Beady Eye stood foolishly on a hill to a 21st century schizoid Jack White… Quinton has always had a surreal eye for the tortuously twisted likeness. Yet at the same time as visually lambasting his subjects there runs a parallel thread of genuine warmth and affection. His portraits have enlivened many a MOJO lead album page, bursting forth with humour and a uniquely colourful vibrancy.


Mark Wagstaff, Art Editor, Mojo
