The SAA are very pleased to be supporting the World Illustration Awards by sponsoring The SAA Agents Award for New Talent.

Artist Spotlight: Joshua Billingham


Birmingham illustrator, Joshua Billingham creates twisted characters that pay homage to the New York subway art of the early 80s.

He intensifies his creations by layering unusual combinations of textures and drawing influence from the cartoons of his childhood .

Josh, aka Gent 48, also likes to people-watch. He often makes caricatures of the folk he meets on his travels. After all, real life can be pretty warped too.
