Euan Cook graduated from University College Falmouth in 2011. He was one of Creative Review's picks of the New Designers 2011 exhibition. His work focuses on good observational drawing skills and bold linework with restrained colour palettes, using less to communicate more. He's interested in sequential narratives and portraying the personalities of people and places he sees around him. He was born and lives in London, the city and its population are his favourite subjects as he seeks out familiar things from unfamiliar perspectives.
Euan enjoys learning about a wide range of topics, with particular interests ranging from local history to neuroscience. He's influenced by the expressive work of contemporary graphic novelists such as Seth, Daniel Clowes, Bryan Lee O'Malley and Jim Woodring as well as the writing of Angela Carter. He likes ginger, black coffee and listening to Tom Waits. He owns a clarinet, but hasn't played it much recently. Euan is working on his own graphic novels exploring his visual language and finding his voice within the genre.
