Hello my name is Simon Wild and I am an artist and illustrator from Suffolk UK. I like to make work that is colourful, decorative and inspired by imaginary worlds, interesting places, toys and unusual objects. I am interested in capturing the fantastical through a combination of observation and imagination. My ideas first take shape as written notes and doodles in sketchbooks which I take with me on my travels, before merging unconnected ideas to form what becomes the concept for an image or an illustration. I work with pen and ink, collage, screen print, and the computer, but always opt where I can for an immediate handmade approach as part of the working process. My work can be seen in print, online and in regular exhibitions.
