After devouring comic books throughout his childhood, Craig worked as a cartoonist during the late 1980s, specialising in pre-school comics. This style later influenced his own original artwork, helping to create his nostalgic fine art pieces.
History and Background
Craig has been drawing for as long as he can remember, and art was his favourite subject at school.
He first began his artistic career as an animator and games designer at a computer games company, where he sculpted reference figures for 3D animation.
In 2007, he entered a competition held by Washington Green, finishing in the last three. Following this, the life of an artist beckoned.
Ideas and Inspirations
Many artists inspire Craig, including: Mike Mignola, Yoshitomo Nara,Goya and N.C. Wyeth. Craig also cites his childhood as the biggest source of inspiration for his work.
Through his pieces, he tries to capture the endless summer holidays spent out on his bike with friends (often rescuing Mexican villages from bandits!).
