My name is Owen Gent and I'm and artist, illustrator and book cover designer living in Bristol, England. I studied illustration at Falmouth, University in Cornwall and I graduated in 2013, since then I've been working as a freelance illustrator and artist in many areas including editorial illustration, advertising, record sleeve design, campaigns for charities and book cover design. When I'm not working on commissioned projects I write my own projects and books, I teach and am always looking for new ways to explore my work.
