Featured artist:

Jorge Garcia Redondo

Jorge is a designer and illustrator from Spain who is currently based in London. He started drawing as soon as he could hold a pencil, and hasn’t stopped since!

Inspired by a weird mix of elements, such as 90s cartoons, comics, mid-century design and street photography, Jorge works both traditionally and digitally for both publishing and a wide range of commercial projects.

Jorge’s work is character-based, colourful, whimsical, and alway tells a story. When he’s not drawing or designing, he can be found lost in a bookshop buying more books to read, sketching people in coffee shops, or trying to befriend each cat he finds!

It’s the most thoughtful and complete book illustration course I’ve ever seen, done or heard of. Having illustrators, lecturers, and publishing
professionals equally involved has made the experience a lot more enriching.

Though Pathways has come to an end, my personal journey is very much continuing. I am incredibly grateful to Pathways for the fantastic opportunities it gave me and I will do my best to make everyone associated with the course proud.
