Born in Somerset, England. Studied at Somerset College of Arts & Technology, Epsom School of Art and Plymouth University. Working freelance as an Illustrator for the best part of 30 years, a visiting lecturer at several UK Art colleges and finally, a Fine Art painter – see more at https://www.paulgarlandart.co.uk
As a visual storyteller, my illustration work is intensely colourful, clean, bold and graphic. My images are conceptual and metaphorical to convey often quite complex subjects for clients worldwide in the fields of Advertising, Design, Branding, Publishing and Editorial.
The 'Projects' tab of this website shows zoomed in details and in-situ prints/tear sheets of some the completed projects.
My work has been recognised with Awards from several major institutions including the NY Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, 3x3, Lürzer's Archive, Society of Illustrators of LA, the Association of Illustrators and the World Illustration Awards amongst others – see ‘Awards’ below.
Many images on this site are available as 'Open-Edition' prints, please click, the 'Shop' button below to visit. If you would like 'Limited Edition' prints of any image shown on this site, please email directly. Limited-Editions will be printed using archival inks on to 100% cotton German Etching paper, signed and embossed, ready to frame.
I have made over 250 illustrations from my back catalogue available for licence on a ‘Rights Managed’ basis. This means that an individual licence is granted and priced according to a specific usage. This number will be constantly added to over time as new works become available.
A licence is supplied along with the illustration highlighting the agreement. This clearly states the size, territory (International area covered), the term of usage (years/months etc) and the usage rights – all in a similar manner to the commissioning of a bespoke piece of artwork, but at a considerably reduced rate.
To get a price, please send an email to email@example.com with the image number (highlighted on each image) stating the intended usage, reproduction size, territory, length of term, any additional specific rights required and finally, a budget. I’ll always do my best to accommodate. Deals are also available for multiple purchases.
Once a price and terms have been agreed and paid for by bank transfer, I will send the agreement along with the image(s) to your preferred email address by FTP.
Exclusive use is a possibility but naturally will incur additional fees. A complete sales history for each image is kept on file to allow for exclusivity should it be required.
Changes to the format (horizontal, portrait, square etc) , colours and in some cases specific image details of many of these works is possible at a standard one off, additional fee.
If you require images for project mock-ups, please feel free to take screen grabs of the watermarked images that interest you – please click on the images to enlarge them.
