Tom Straw

My name is Tom Straw and I am a freelance illustrator based in Birmingham. I specialise in editorial and conceptual illustration, in particular my work covers themes such as politics, science and technology. My visual language relies on a use of 3D modelling software to produce grainy, textured illustrations for use in print media. My recent clients include; The Guardian, Big Issue and WIRED.

Through STEAMhouse I aim to push my illustrative process in new directions with the experimentation of incorporating 3D scanning into my technical process. As well as exploring how digital 3D scenes can be captured in 2D print design. While building my business as a freelance illustrator and designer.
