Harry Tennant is a master of bold conceptual and figurative illustrations with a simple colour palette.

The previous Falmouth University student now lives back in London, where he was born, creating observational drawings with block colours which reference his background in traditional screen printing. This can can be seen through his use of texture and overlapping layers.

Harry doesn’t like working in too much detail; but emphasises shape and composition. Represented by the Central Illustration Agency, his style is described as "narrative driven work with a healthy does of grit".

After graduating with a first class degree from university specialising in editorial illustration in 2012, his work has featured at D&AD New Blood and in numerous editorials such as BBC Wildlife Magazine, Buzzfeed, WIRED and Libération.

He tells us how his approach to illustration is identical to preparing a traditional screenprint, loose observational sketching and how to find clients after graduating.
