    Patch Keyes: Nightmare

Illustration: Patch Keyes shows us how real illustration is done

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Refreshing to see a portfolio like that of the magically named Patch Keyes. His whole body of work tells us a story of a labourer whose work tells a story of his own self. Through meticulous print and enviable draughtsmanship, Patch depicts hallucinogens, bad dreams and exotic animals. A founding member of Puck Collective, Patch is no stranger to the modern illustration world, which is perhaps why his old-fashioned-with-a-twist method of working is so appealing. From portraits to logos, to just downright trippy imagery – Patch is your man.
