Luke Brookes

Luke Brookes is an illustrator based in Staffordshire. Adopting a narrative-driven style, illustrator Luke Brookes’ extensive portfolio has developed from a love for telling stories. His use of dramatic lighting and a restricted colour palette gives rise to vivid, graphic compositions that boast an atmospheric and energetic aesthetic  

Lighting is a tool Luke uses to define his aesthetic as much as his personable drawing style and his adept use of pared-down palettes. He skilfully uses shadows in his illustrations to add weight and atmosphere but sometimes also as key components of the visual narrative.
For over 8 years the UK based illustrator has been dishing out a wealth of work for a number of clients including Playboy, Variety, The Telegraph, Barrons, Politico, Virgin, Little White Lies, Culture Trip and many more.
