Joe Wilson is an award winning illustrator based in England specialising in the production of detailed illustrations and print. Working with a combination of pencil, ink and digital colour, Joe's work takes form as a hybrid of the traditional and contemporary.

After working professionally for the last 12 years, Joe's work has developed a distinctive style. Joe’s work is underpinned by a background in etching and screen printing, combined with more contemporary influences coming from the world of comic books and graphic novels. Known for his focus on detail and drawing, alongside a preference for muted colour palettes, this unique style and his considered draftsmanship attract a wide variety of international clients, with work ranging from full media advertising campaigns to limited run screen prints.

In recent years Joe's work has been commissioned by global clients such as, Johnnie Walker, Adidas, Royal Ascot UK, Ted Baker, Tommy Hilfiger, Virgin Mobile, Coors, Carlsberg, Film4, The Savoy Hotel, Absolut Vodka, Bombay Sapphire, Citibank, Kiehl’s, Mr Porter, Boeing, SNCF (France), Crabtree & Evelyn, BMW, EMI, Vanity Fair, GQ, The Washington Post, Random House Publishing, Hachette Publishing, Nature Magazine, Planet Rock Magazine, Variety magazine and National Geographic.

His work adorns products all over the world in various forms including, beer cans, spirit bottles, murals, clothing, and luxury skin cream he is perhaps best known for his award winning, and continued work with San Francisco’s 21st Amendment Brewery.
Joe created the first ever illustrated edition of 2001: A Space Odyssey for the Folio Society, and fittingly also collaboratively created the first cocktail menu to be sent into space!
