Hylton is Durban-based graphic designer and illustrator. He is 25, and studied graphic design at the Durban University of Technology, majoring in illustration. During the day he works as a designer for a local advertising agency, and moonlights as an illustrator. He has been a part of the art and design scene since 2006, and loves art, music, hanging with friends, making stuff, but mostly has an obsession with children’s books.

He is also largely influenced by the Children’s books he collects. He has a fiance named Chantellé, they’re getting married in July! Woohoo. They are also currently working on writing & illustrating children’s books together, so watch this space! Hylton also has a dog, a boxer, named Zoey. As an emerging artist, Hylton is updating his portfolio and website, so be sure to keep an eye out for new work!
