London-based illustrator Paul Layzell is a Graduate of the University of Brighton’s Illustration BA/Hons course in 2011. He is part of the duo Layzell Bros with his brother Matt. They are directors, animators, illustrators, music makers and in general people that enjoy visualizing the thoughts that reside inside the mind. They have been working together since they were kids so they’ve had some practice. Matt had a staunch and strictly religious education in animation, and Paul a free-flowing one in illustration, but they work in both fields, merging their respective talents together.
Paul’s inspiration for his work consists of stuff he grew up with, 90s stuff, sports stuff, skateboarding, cartoons and Keith Haring. Like a stereotypical teenager he used to skateboard, play basketball.
