Alexis Deacon, concept artist
Many will know how well Alexis can tell a story in words and images. Twenty years after the first publication of Beegu, he still gets letters from school children who want to give Beegu a home. More recently, his illustrations for the books of Russell Hoban are poignant but powerful, and his graphic novels full of not just compelling stories but hundreds of pages of expert draughtsmanship and imagination. And now he’s turned all that expertise into the role of concept designer for TV. You can see more on that here.
