Ollie Hirst

Ollie is a conceptual illustrator, working and living in Manchester, UK.
Illustration makes him tick. Though it’s the not the only thing that does. He’s a cardiac pacemaker patient. So, whilst he puts his heart into drawing, it gets help from time to time. He has a natural affinity to science and the human body, but tends to just love subjects that resonate in the real world. Ollie’s work hinges on a strong idea and the concept usually drives it, helped by a splash of colour. His illustration spans across editorial & advertising, working with the likes of The Washington Post, The Financial Times, Adobe, WeTransfer and the Big Issue, among others.
