A Look at the Artist’s Process
Studio Space: Tripwire talks to different artists about their process for creating art.
Simon Davis is the artist on 2000AD’s Slaine, but also a respected painter. He is best known to comic fans for his fully painted art on Sinister Dexter, Black Siddha, Slaine and Stone Island. He also paints contemporary figurative paintings and portraits, and is a member of both the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA) and the Royal Society of Portrait Painters with works in number of British art galleries.
Born in 1968 in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, Simon attended Alcester Grammar School, going on to a Diploma in Technical illustration from Mid-Warwickshire College, and worked as a graphic designer and freelance illustrator of books and magazines before moving into comics work in the mid-90s.
Since then Simon has mainly worked for 2000 AD contributing art to Missionary Man, Sinister Dexter, Black Siddha, Slaine and Stone Island.
Tripwire caught up with him at his studio in London’s West Ham to ask him how he works.
