Laurie Avon
is a new-graduate illustrator living and working between London and Brighton. His work is primarily created through linocut relief printing and is celebrated for a gestural and handmade approach. His most recent collaborations have been with Penguin Books, SoccerBible and The HudsonBec Group (It’s Nice That...).

Laurie’s personal research and interests are rooted in documentary and humanitarian awareness; evident in his sustained exploration into various aspects of the UK’s refugee crisis. He is also a co-founder of both Minute Books (a performative press making live publications of events) and CritClub (a group for creatives to refine their practices through peer set and reviewed projects).
