Guy Field was raised in the West Midlands, UK, in a town called Stourbridge. He moved to sunny Cornwall to earn a BA in graphic design at Falmouth University, where he spent most of his time not doing any design but instead doodling in sketchbooks. He graduated in 2012 with a quest to bring drawing into his career, which he got the chance to do while working as an in-house designer at Studio Moross in London. He finally became a fully fledged freelancer in early 2018. Guy now lives and works in South London, largely from his studio near Brixton. He mostly enjoys drawing “stupid cartoons,” but also likes to mix it up with different styles and mediums, keeping things fresh and unique for a variety of projects and clients.
