My name is Thom Simpson, and I’m an illustrator from the South-West of England.

I take inspiration from all elements of nature, and can often be found adventuring in woodland areas, wandering by the ocean, or trekking up mountains. My work is predominantly black and white, drawn with fine pens over an initial pencil sketch. It conveys the subtleties and details of the natural world, using intricate line work, flowing shapes and patient cross hatching techniques.

I firmly believe in the importance of a thoughtful, considered approach when it comes to producing anything with my work. My creativity stems from the natural world, and I wish to do as much as possible within my ability to channel that creativity in a positive and meaningful direction. 

I aim to be able to produce all of my work using traditional techniques and processes, with hand-crafted finesse being at the forefront of my practice. I currently use as little plastic as possible when packaging orders, with the hope that one day I can cut plastics out from my process completely. 

My dream is to build what was once a hobby into a small, sustainable, home-grown business, with the opportunity to create and collaborate on beautiful, hand-crafted products that do no harm to the earth.
