Alex Howes

I am a freelance illustrator and animator from London, now living in Stockholm.

After graduating I was selected as a highly commended emerging talent at the Cheltenham Illustration Awards and went on to work at the world famous Aardman Animations in Bristol, UK. I was a model maker on projects such as Shaun the Sheep and their feature length Oscar nominated film Pirates.

I moved to Sweden a couple of years ago and have published several children's books with Opal and Natur & Kultur. My books have also been published worldwide, in countries including Denmark, Taiwan, Korea and China, 

I work predominantly in acrylic and ink and enjoy focusing on the eccentricities that lie just below the surface of everyday subjects.
