This is Raj - an image maker/ illustrator who we first hooked up with last year for Rad Science. He's a bloody good egg so have a read and get to know the guy!
Raj makes work that communicates a narrative within the illustration – but it's the process of the image that he's most interested in – how the sketchbook will appear when he gets his idea, how his block will turn out before exposing the images onto a screen, cutting the lino, and messing up in the process and etc...
He believes it's essential to make work where you can take a step back and see that a human has created it, and not a computer (although the computer might assist it).
But what do we really want to know about him? Let's have a read yeah?!
