London based illustrator and designer Hinton explains that “I chose the word HUNGRY because of the struggle, the ambition, the consumption of London.”

“My hand drawn illustration work tends to look quite random but there is a reason, no matter how thin, behind each mark. Sometimes things don’t turn out as I planned but that’s part of the fun right?…”

“…I draw the main composition in light pencil first, throw in a few details, then ink the lot, add some fat outlines and then just freestyle the rest, building up and up to the point of fear that one more line could collapse everything. My shadow work is somewhat inaccurate, with no fixed point of light – reality is not my concern.”


Hinton is a London based illustrator and designer who works on branding, infographics and UI design for technology companies and the healthcare sector.
