Guy Shield, Storytelling Illustrator

Guy Shield’s passions are storytelling, scenic illustrations, and engaging color palettes

Melbourne-based storyteller and illustrator Guy Shield has a background in design and an obsession with drawing. Growing up in Australia, Guy taught himself how to draw by littering the pages of his schoolbooks with the depths of his imagination, hoping one day his talents would not only find him fame and fortune but also distract women from the fact that he was really bad at sports. Though neither truly prevailed, Guy did develop an undying love for image making and a successful career in publishing and illustration, creating cover illustrations for renowned magazines such as “Kill Your Darlings”, among others. The artist works mostly in pen and ink before moving to his Wacom tools, carefully crafting scenes that provoke intrigue and familiarity through formal compositions and engaging color palettes.
