About

ABOUT

Steven is an Illustrator who lives and works in Brighton, UK. Originally from North London Steven fell in love with Brighton whilst studying on the renowned Illustration course there. He can often be found foraging through the local flea markets for obscure books and discarded paraphernalia to use as inspiration for his varied and experimental work which he generalizes as ‘somewhere between pop and psychedelia'.

He has a particular passion for working on album covers as he enjoys their permanent nature. "I like the idea that with an album sleeve the artwork is forever associated with that album and so you are creating a little piece of history."
