T.S Spookytooth is a mystery man, no-one really knows his real name nor much about his formative years. He lives in North London currently, and growing up there was no paper around, only furniture. So, he would scribble on chairs, tables and desks – some of which might still be out there somewhere and may even be collectible.
He’s a self-taught artist, but has worked alongside many of the luminaries of the illustration world for many years.
His work is hand painted using acrylics. T.S even has a brush with just a single hair, for those finer areas of detail. The work is finished off on a computer, for tweaking and final flourishes.
Whimsical, fantastical, often with a touch of darkness, T.S Spookytooth’s style is, well, a little spooky.
