Illustrator and designer Thomas Danthony has only been working in London for a year having moved over from Toulon, France. Before embarking upon a full-time design career on British soil he’s pursued many, varied types of education and training, including furniture design, climbing rope manufacture and lighting. We’re sure he excelled at all of these disciplines, but it’s his illustration we’re really interested in.
Creating imagery with a slick, digital polish Thomas seems to have recently found his own unique style, combining ligne-claire sensibilities with a strong understanding of subtle gradients. We’re particularly keen on his proposed album cover for Alt-J’s debut release, featuring an isolated arctic observatory that demonstrates the strength of his illustrative skills alongside a clear knack for engaging packaging. Look out for this guy, he’s on the rise!
