50's cartoon comic strip pop printmaking


Jacquie Boyd was born in Jarrow in the north east of England and studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Newcastle and Lincoln. Her early career began in the advertising industry in London at the tail end of the magic marker and gouache era, and the pre-Mac hands-on fast drawing and colouring techniques have hugely influenced the style of both her fine art and illustration work.

Jacquie taught graphics and illustration at Newcastle College for many years before starting to paint and work freelance as an illustrator. She fuses a style grounded in retro teenage comics and pop art with comments on contemporary culture. She produces her illustration work developing traditonally hand drawn linework with digital colouring, still loving the whole drawing process.

Jacquie’s clients include digital online work for clients including BBC3, Bonjela ,Crown Royal Canadian Whisky, Cambridge Weight Plan, Net a Porter, Hitachi, LV Iinsurance;
print work for clients such as Scope, The Canal and River Trust, Toyota, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Easyjet and Wizz airlines: magazine and newspaper illustrations work for The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, Guardian, illustrations for magazines including R.S.A., Intelligent Life, Cosmopolitan, Tatler, Women's Health, GQ, Mental Floss, Imbibe, Chubb, Chief Executive, Psychologies, Weightwatchers, Lighter Life, American publications such as Wall St. Journal. Key Club U.S., Hemisphere, several covers for The Big Issue, step by step illustrations for recipes in a complete Italian cookbook and packaging work for Lush cosmetics.

Her original paintings are very much in the same vein as her illustration work, comic based pop art frames with speech bubbles and her original acrylics on canvas sell in galleries across the country.

Jacquie’s illustration work was featured in Martin Dawber’s ‘Modern Vintage Illustration’ published in 2012.
