I just finished another set of photos for 20in15 with illustrator Alex Foster. He specialises in map illustrations, print and editorial work, creating from his Margate based studio. Orders come at a fast pace through his online shop, and if you take a look at it you can see why. Adverts, films, books, clothing, and a recent commission of timelines for the Roald Dahl company make up his impressive portfolio. For someone who told me “I’m not very good at drawing”, I think he’s doing pretty well! Thanks to meeting Alex, I now know how to find the best pizza place in town (and probably the planet), I have better clothing, and I really want to visit Margate again.
