Arts Emergency

Tom Humberstone

Comic artist and illustrator

I’m a professional freelance comic artist and illustrator – providing a weekly comic for the New Statesman and self-publishing my own comics.

I would never have developed into the artist I am today were it not for my higher education. The support, knowledge, encouragement and criticism that I received during my four years of art college gave me the tools and courage I needed to pursue a creative career. I’d like to pass on anything I can to those who may not have that opportunity and share what I’ve learned as a practising freelancer to those who may get something from it.
