Spencer is a London based illustrator and co-founder of the illustration, design and animation company Peepshow Collective Ltd. He has been working to commission since 1998 in a world of neat piles of mess, coffee cups and ordered chaos. His work follows this theme with the creation of sketchy ideas and twisted thoughts, carried through into clean vectored, balanced images placed in dynamic flat colour compositions with the occasional introduction of texture. He’s also a father to 2 fantastic girls who never cease to inspire him.

Artist of the week - Telegramme Studio

Telegramme is a collaboration that snowballed in to a fully functional studio. Working via the postal service with Christopher in Bristol and Robert based in Cornwall, they developed a creative partnership thanks to a mutual love of music, art and the receiving of post. 

Now in London, illustrators/designers Christopher & Robert draw, design, screen print, make patterns, are computer geeks, obsess over music, drink too much tea, are 1/2 dyslexic, collect stamps, post letters, raid skips and are mixing ink most of the time. (so finding time to write a snappy profound manifesto aout themselves is quite the task)
