I haven’t been about and about much the last few months so another Falmouth based illustrator this month, Claire Chamberlain. I know Claire’s work mainly from my brief collaboration with All the Fires, back in the day. She worked in the same circles and created the artwork for their first and final album before they sadly split in the summer. Since then I have been seeing her posts on facebook and really liked her sense of design and colour so decided to get her to send some pieces in. Working full time while working freelance on the side is what a lot of illustrators I know have to do these days. I did it for a while before securing a range of books to illustrate, meaning I could go full time in my illustration, but it’s not always that easy. Anyway, over to Claire to share a little piece of her illustrated life.

“I was born and bred in Cornwall and have spent the majority of my life in Falmouth where I studied illustration at Falmouth University. I moved to Bristol in 2007 but returned to Cornwall after 5 years of trying to live the city life. I currently work fulltime but I also do freelance illustration and design work alongside the humdrum of daily life!
