Tom Mac specialises in digital illustration; and also experiments with photography, moving image, motion graphics and interactive media.
Where did you train, and what did you specialise in?
I studied Graphic Design at UCA Epsom. The course opened my eyes to a whole new world of digital media, and taught me an appreciation and understanding of a wide range of digital design.
What’s your favourite tool?
I think the most important tool for any creative is a pencil and pen; whether that’s for sketching or writing down ideas. Apart from that I would have to say a camera. I don’t know what I would do without being able to take pictures or capture film.
What kinds of materials do you work with?
I work with anything I can get my hands on, be that a computer, a camera, paint or pens.
Which clients have you worked for, and where has your work been exhibited?
I’ve worked for a variety of clients and studios. Last year I collaborated on a project with AnyForty, which was exhibited at the Outpost Project in Sydney. It was the largest street art exhibition in the southern hemisphere with over 85,000 people attending.
What inspires you?
I think the best inspiration comes from something that has absolutely nothing in common with what you’re working on at the time.
Tom was asked by AnyForty to create a limited edition piece of artwork for print and apparel to celebrate everything Great and British. It’s called Pride.
