Lee Thomas is an illustrator from Wales who focuses on traditional and digital artwork. His style is often surreal and playful, mixing a cartoon style and colouring with more realistic shading and textures, to create a purposefully naïve yet self aware style of artwork. He enjoys using occult symbolism and creating characters in his artwork, usually represented in a cartoon-like way but with a deeper meaning. He often creates colourful artwork inspired by animation and his favourite cartoons, and also black and white artwork inspired by gothic subcultures and esoteric philosophy. His favourite artists are James Jean for his dreamlike landscapes and characters, and Tenhundred for his contemporary, cartoon influenced artwork and how he uses colour.
