Alex Walker: Internet of Growing Things

Work / Illustration

Illustration: Former graduate Alex Walker lives out his former career predictions in style!

It’s been almost two years since we hand-picked Alex Walker from a lineup of hundreds of young graduates and told everyone what a creative genius he was, and since then he’s only gone from strength to strength. The former Nottingham Trent student dazzled us with his ability to illustrate technically advanced and conceptually ambiguous concepts with playful ingenuity.

At the time he tipped himself to one day freelance for titles like Wired and Eureka: “To create work for magazines I’ve always enjoyed reading would be a dream come true… like Wired, Eureka (_The Times’ science supplement) and Monocle”. Unfortunately Eureka is no more, but Alex has indeed spent time working for Wired and Monocle, suggesting he’s supernaturally prescient as well as a great illustrator. We love it when a plan comes together!
