Laurie graduated from Kingston School of Art in 2018 and now works as a freelance illustrator across editorial and publishing. His signature style is bold and intricate, championing the handmade process of lino cutting. His clients include Penguin, BBC, Tortoise Media, SoccerBible, and It’s Nice That. His personal work is rooted in activism: with a sustained exploration into the UK’s refugee crisis. On the side he also runs various relief printing workshops with creative studios and the general public.
His work has also been published in the Observer Newpaper as part of Minute Books; a performative press (he co-founded) that illustrate and produce live publications of events. Clients include the Barbican, It’s Nice That, Somerset House and Cancer Research.
Laurie works in a studio in sunny Brighton.
