Guy Shield is a Melbourne-based illustrator with a background in design and an obsession with drawing. Growing up in Richmond (back when it was dangerous), Guy taught himself to draw in the back of his schoolbooks. He littered the pages with the depths of his imagination, hoping one day his talents would not only find him fame and fortune but also distract women from the fact that he was really bad at sports. Though neither truly prevailed, he did develop an undying love for image making and a successful career in publishing and illustration. Guy works mostly in pen and ink, carefully crafting scenes that provoke intrigue and familiarity through formal compositions and engaging colour palettes. Put simply, Guy’s passion is scenic storytelling, and boy does he tell those stories well.
