Jack Viant graduated from Arts University Plymouth with a BA (Hons) Illustration in 2015. Previously, Jack has been a Graduate Studentship Lecturer at the university, working alongside the Careers team, students and lecturers. Jack currently lectures on BA (Hons) Illustration at Arts University Plymouth.
“As a Studentship Lecturer I work primarily with 1st year degree students and I provide confidence boosting and guidance as well as a mass amount of online visual resources which assist students in making the most out of their time and resources here at the college. Additionally I offer advice and guidance concerning my experience in the art industry as well as supporting the whole ‘good student bad student paradigm’ I aim to guide students along the correct path!”
As well as working at the university Jack also focuses on his work as a Freelance Illustrator. Jack has worked with clients including Oxford University Press, Woodmansterne publications, Supha's Street Food Emporium, Syfy, OKIDO Magazine, Hallmark Cards, Dartmoor Zoo, Animated Exeter and Plymouth History Week. Specialising in children’s illustrations, Jack is published by Bloomsbury, Miles Kelly, Hachette and Oxford University Press, and represented by the Bright Agency.
“My work is playful and abstract. A lot of my imagery is influenced by vintage edgy cartoons and the surrealist movement. My work is composed digitally but contains hand rendered textures and other elements which are then implemented and manipulated digitally. I enjoy the thought of perpetual chaos! “
