Paul Thompson – Designer

Illustrator with a passion for cartoons, dedicated to storytelling through fanciful children’s book art.



I’m a UK based freelance illustrator/creator living in the south west.

I have a passion for storytelling using illustration and I’m enthusiastic about children's media.

Recently I have been adapting and refocusing my style and portfolio to reflect this.

I enjoy creating fun art that resonates with children, crafting worlds and encouraging imaginations.

I’m Inspired by Saturday morning cartoons, fantasy illustration, street art and the greatest artist of all mother nature.

Having freelanced for several years I've had the pleasure of working with a wide range of clients on a plethora of varied projects.

These range from creating corporate mascots to illustrations/cartoons for use in advertising. I’ve worked alongside independent comic writers and designed illustrations for greetings cards.

I enjoy working with people assisting in the journey that brings fantastical visions to fruition.

Albert Einstein said, “creativity is contagious, pass it on”.

Paul was incredible to work with and was able to create lovable characters with their own unique traits and energy given the brief descriptions my son and I provided. Looking forward to working with him again in the future!
