Biography

BloodBros is New Zealand-born illustrator and graphic artist Emile Holmewood, who currently lives in London. Emile majored in graphic design and graduated with a Bachelor of Design (hons) in 2008.
 
Once told by a studio creative director to remember he is a "graphic designer who illustrates, and not the other way around", Emile has since worked tirelessly to prove otherwise, bringing his artistic flair to everything he does.
 
Nevertheless, Emile’s unique style is underpinned by graphic design principles, and contradiction is central to his work: he constructs his illustrations in cold-hearted vectors, then warms them up with playful colours and a heavy dose of humour. And he’s not afraid to add a bit of rock ’n’ roll to the mix by experimenting with animation.
 
Emile's inspiration comes from a vast array of eclectic sources including baroque paintings, LEGO, vintage western posters, comics, video games, Japanese anime and The Simpsons – to name but a few.
 
Emile is a member of London's Print Club, where he brings his work to life in the form of limited-edition screen prints. When not illustrating, he can be found writing and illustrating his own comics – he debuted his first comic and London’s celebrated ELCAF 2016.
