Having grown up in the not-so-leafy suburbs of Manchester in the UK in the late 1980's, Martin Bowyer feels lucky to have experienced cars without rear seat-belts, kicking tin-cans around streets when no-one had a ball and white dog poo.
This period of neon-coloured socks, shell-suits and Ford Cortina's has made an indelible impression and his passion for Manchester City and The Stone Roses remain.
A few years in London, whilst feeling the squeeze of university debts, provided a wealth of life and work experiences and preceded a move to Aalborg in Denmark where he now lives with his wife, two girls and cat.
Following a career in advertising spanning over 10 years, 2 languages and a variety of job descriptions, including Art Director, graphic designer & illustrator, in 2013 Martin Bowyer went solo to focus his energy on his own form of illustrative design.
Martin's illustration style can be described as bold, fun & humorous and has been used in a wide variety of projects, both large and small within branding, advertising campaigns, packaging design and editorial publications in the UK, Denmark and Australia.
These are some of the nice people he's had the pleasure to work with so far
