Biography

Lover of the felt-tip Holly Wales is an illustrator living between London and Devon, working for clients such as Frieze, GQ, The New York Times and The Telegraph among many others. Her trademark exuberant felt-tip aesthetic allows Holly to give a new lease of life to things we may pass by without noticing in the real world: cars, fast food restaurants, street corners and houses. The diversity of the objects and things she draws are brought to life by the lines of the markers, the traces of the artists’ hand, that she uses to depict them. “I absolutely love the variety of projects that I get invited to work on,” Holly says. “It’s great when someone spots the potential in my work and it sends me in a whole new direction.”

Clients

Bloomberg, Condé Nast, Deutsche Bank, Esquire, Fallon, Financial Times, Frieze, GQ, Nestle, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, Men’s Health, Travel & Leisure, National Geographic, Byron Hamburgers, The Huffington Post, The V&A, The Telegraph, Uniqlo, Urban Outfitters, Wired.
