Jack McConnell

Jack McConnell is an illustrator living and working in South Manchester. Graduating from the Manchester School of Art Illustration and Animation course.

Using a mix of both traditional and digital painting techniques to create flat and colourful drawings with a Naïve and playful style with a focus on bold and energetic lines through a process of automatic drawing.

Influenced by altered states of consciousness, ancient art and comics with recurring themes of space, women and domestic animals. Jack’s work is a meeting point of human consciousness and primal utopias to convey simple stories with a soft tone.
