Jay Taylor graduated from the University of Central Lancashire, UK in 2005 with a BA(hons) Illustration degree. In the short space of time following, Jay has worked for a number of high profile clients in advertising, editorial and new media sections. He is regularly commissioned by a top national newspaper in the U.K. Jay's style plays on life's imperfections and is a big fan of the, "Happy accident". Everything you see in Jay's illustrations are made by hand, with the computer only coming in at the latter stages to composite and change colours of objects. Jay is also part of creative collective We're Still Alive, with whom he regularly exhibits work.
