Harry Woodgate Interview
Harry Woodgate is an illustrator from St Albans. His work combines collage and print processes with digital imagery. He's inspired by various themes including mental health, politics, LGBT+ issues and our relationship with the natural world. When not illustrating he's usually making music, petting his cat or drinking unhealthy amounts of hot chocolate. Usually all three at once.
Once on holiday in Greece I awoke in the middle of the night to find a huge praying mantis sat on top of my mouth. I've hated the things ever since.
I'm currently working with a brilliant author on my first children's book, which is really exciting! I don't know that I could pick out a top three though, I'd feel too guilty!
Drawing has been my biggest love since before I even started nursery, and at age four I decided I wanted to be an author and illustrator. I toyed with a few more academic careers but it was sort of like a rubber band always pulling me back.
Photoshop and a Wacom tablet are my bread and butter. Besides that I just use whatever pens and paints and other stuff I can find lying around at the time.
My friends, family, people who are pushing forward in the face of adversity or amplifying the voices of people who too often don't get heard.
