Rusty Weir

Illustration - BA (Hons)

Rusty is a non-binary illustrator from rural Lincolnshire. Their primary focus is on creating sequential narrative illustration, like graphic novels, though they are also interested in story boarding, and illustration within the music industry, like tour posters, album art, and other types of merch design.

Themes they are particularly interested in are nature, witchcraft/the occult, sci-fi, and fantasy. Rusty has been inspired by Keith Haring, Julia King, Tillie Walden, Nejieb, Czechoslovakian embroidery, mythology/folk stories, new school tattoos, various tarot decks, and a wide range of album covers. In the future Rusty is hoping to create a deck of tarot cards, as well as writing and illustrating a graphic novel.
