Laurence Whiteley

I have been a professional Illustrator and Graphic Designer for over 20 years- born and bred in London where I still work from a home studio. A brief period at Art College made me realise that fine art was not for me! after working as Art Editor on Custom Car and Superbike Magazines (where I discovered my passion for American muscle cars), I worked free-lance for several London Design Companies. I decided to focus on Illustration and became heavily influenced by the poster artists of the 1930's, some of the unsung heros of graphic design- Artists like Tom Purvis, Joseph Binder as well as Cassandre and the brilliant Ludwig Hohlwein.
