Steve Wilkin

Steve Wilkin, Course leader in Illustration at UCLAN Is an illustrator and lecturer, based near Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire. He has worked as a freelance illustrator for a wide range of design and publishing clients since graduating from Manchester Polytechnic in 1987.

Steve has exhibited nationally and internationally including showing picture book illustrations at Bolognafiere. His current work is based on the sketchbook drawings he does whilst commuting.

Steve has has been drawing his fellow commuters on his daily journey between Hebden Bridge and Preston over the last ten years. It has become a fundamental part of his drawing practice. He has so far collected over twenty sketchbooks of drawings.

Last year Steve published a newspaper called
seventhirtyeight’ recording over seventy of these commuter drawings.
    “It is effectively a travelling exhibition. I handed out the paper on my commute to my fellow passengers”.
The newspaper also made an appearance at the International Drawing Project

You can see the on-going record of the project on his blog.
