Sean Lewis -> Illustrator
First off, thank you for checking out my work. My name is Sean and I'm an Illustrator based in London, and I produce concept art inspired by sneaker culture.
My journey into the art world was, let's just say a little less conventional than most, as art school was not on the horizon in my later teens, as I chose to adopt the role of a health professional.
In December 2019 I read the book ‘Outliers’ by Malcom Gladwell. Without spoiling the premise of the book, simply practice makes you a lot better.
Leading up this I had spent some time vectoring sneakers on illustrator, but just felt a sense of wanting to do more.
And so I embarked on a journey of focused self-directed study and practice. I scoured many online tutorial including numerous anatomical studies, background compositions, lighting and shading and then some.
For one I will continue to learn and improve my art, and I am incredibly excited at just that prospect.
By nature, I am eternally curious! With my art heavily influenced by sneaker and urban culture, I have already began exploring ways to leverage my creativity on these industries.
