Hey there!

Hello and welcome to The School of Illustration! We’re so excited to welcome you to our dynamic, industry focused online learning resource for illustrators. We’re a one-stop shop for education and guidance on all things illustration and entrepreneurship, plus a friendly creative community committed to supporting illustrators at every stage of the creative journey.

With a combined 30+ years’ experience in both freelance illustration and higher education, we’re passionate about bringing high quality, accessible advice and support for illustrators to a wider audience. You can look forward to plenty of kick ass illustration content, from industry insider advice and creative inspiration to courses, workshops and other exciting creative stuff.

Each week we’ll be blogging about tasty illustration based content, from easy-to-action advice and artistic inspiration, to our inner musings on creativity and life and stuff. It’ll give you the perfect time to take a pause in your busy week, grab a cuppa and have your creative batteries recharged. And we always love hearing from you, so drop us a line at if you’ve got any suggestions about topics you’d like us to cover, any feedback or just to say hi!

Also don’t forget to join us on socials, our fave hangouts on the world wide interweb are Instagram and Pinterest, just look for @theschoolofillustration. Here you’ll find more great content, a peek behind the scenes at SoI Towers, and cos we’re massive cheeseballs, some good old inspirational quotes (don’t worry though, we won’t be asking you to Live Laugh Love!)
