a few words about illustration and art-direction.

There are few styles as immediately recognisable as the digital portraits of Stanley Chow.

The Manchester raised and based illustrator is globally recognised as a heavyweight in the illustration industry, his work being seen regularly in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Nike, WWE and Wired among many other high profile places.

Stanley shares the inside story of his success from the roots of his skills, humbly beginning drawing on chip paper at his parents' chip shop, using biro pens to tales of first being in trouble with The White Stripes, then working with them, a job that would play a big part in the launch of his career.

How does he go about fighting the fact that his work is one of the most mimicked and parodied in the world?

We talk about his work blowing up, how he keeps himself hungry and why he continues to create heartfelt personal projects.
