Georgia Haire’s intuitive and melodic illustrations

Georgia Haire’s introduction to illustration wasn’t necessarily a natural one. “The last formal art education I had was at GSCE level,” she explains. However no academic training is required for her intuitive and melodic style of drawing.

After studying history at the University of Manchester, Georgia moved back to her hometown of London and began working at museums. The illustrator then moved to Amsterdam, but returned to England study an MSc in the history and philosophy of science. Despite Georgia’s educational interest being at the opposite side of the spectrum, she “continues to draw and paint and engage with those kind of skills because it’s something I’ve always liked, and it was pretty soothing for my OCD and anxiety”.

The results are gracefully pared-back illustrations, often of minimal colour combinations. A black line is layered with an illuminating colour choice of yellow or pink in a watercolour or pastel like consistency. Georgia’s consistent use of a white background creates clean drawings, allowing the flowing foreground illustration to capture your attention.
