Ali Wallace is a freelance illustrator. Chiefly working with technical pens, his detailed line drawings of carefully arranged objects have been applied to a variety of projects for local businesses and charities. The predominantly black and white illustrations and designs have been used for greetings cards, recipes, event posters, branding as well as privately commissioned artwork. He is beginning to introduce new processes to his practice, including digital rendering, to explore colour and expand the range of potential outlets for his designs.
Wallace takes influence from an eclectic and diverse range of sources, from cabinets of curiosities to comic book art, medieval etchings to tattoo flash sheets and from antique adverts to modern graffiti. He brings together intricate illustration with diagrammatic design elements in an aesthetically ordered manner and laced with a twist of the surreal. His work is in an ongoing positive state of flux, evolving with every new piece.
