An Interview with Illustrator Tom Hughes

Dark and comic Illustrator Tom Hughes draws the world in all of its glorious, ugly wonder

Written by Jessica Cook

Tom Hughes

Tom Hughes, aka Hyoos, is an Illustrator and Designer whose favourite word is 'blimp'. Studying Animation at Falmouth, he's currently working on some great projects, including cover art for Music Producer KickRaux and Singer-Songwriter Elly Jupp. Having trademarked his alter ego Hyoos, he's hoping to spend the next few years building up the brand. Tom has plans to start collecting watches and a love of outer space and Wales, he's also about to take the first steps towards forging a career in illustration. With all things comic and creepy as part of his signature style, you can't but help be drawn (geddit?!) into his scary and intriguing world.
