He’s an award-winning Scottish illustrator who creates bold, punky, mixed-media illustrations in both still and moving image. Just like we are socially sanctioned from letting the snot drip from our noses, we’re taught to contain the messier parts of the human condition. Miles’ work invites us to embrace the wobbly bits of our brains and bodies, through education, humour and compassion. His projects are always designed to combine social engagement with entertainment. Common themes in his work include mental health, LGBTQ+ issues, sexual health and body positivity.
When not scribbling away, Miles can be found with his first love: music (sorry, drawings!) His aesthetic inspiration often comes from musicians who use visuals to enhance the experience of their work. Whilst the majority of GUNK illustration can currently be found in the charity sector, Miles also has a passion to visually bring music and entertainment to life, as well as collaborate with socially engaged brands and organisations.
