I'm Miles, the guy behind Gunk Illustration!
My work aims to address issues that are often difficult to discuss or taboo, i.e. the GUNK! Just like we are socially sanctioned from letting the snot drip from our noses, we are expected to contain many of the issues that human beings so commonly face. I believe that illustration can address many of these issues through kindness, humour and education. I want to help us learn about each other and share our common experiences so we can free some of the gunk we often keep inside.
I am a musician as well as an illustrator. I do not believe they should be separate, to me they have always been telling stories together. This is why I create work which unites music and illustration. My projects are always designed to combine social engagement with entertainment. Therefor I often research through workshop facilitation and surveys to create results in many mediums, regularly including animations, films and printed media.
