Wow. Spooky, fantastical and beautiful. Young illustrator Quintin Weyer chats to Handsome Things about some of his upcoming projects.
What is your background and what are you up to now?
Well I just finished 3rd year at NMMU (Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University) in PE where I studied fine art and illustration. At the moment I am selling prints and trying to find some freelance work. I’m quite a newcomer, and I’m really looking for work and trying to establish a career as a freelance illustrator.
Any upcoming projects?
I am not studying this year and I have plans to make some sculptures of my work as well as doing some pieces on wood. I have been working with the wood burner tool and some interesting things should be coming out soon.
I am also focusing on my music this year. I been working on combing my songs with my illustrations. I enjoy how music can be linked to my illustrations, and how it changes the viewing experience.
Thanks, Quintin, it’s inspiring to see such awesome young talent.
