Profile: Joe Turvey
|Illustration by Joe Turvey|
Having finished a BA in womenswear, Joe has since moved onto menswear and is currently manufacturing his first collection, which will hopefully be showing next fashion week. His career as an illustrator began when he was approached by Amelia’s Magazine to contribute his work. Since then he has gone on to illustrate for a wide variety of magazines including Volt Magazine and Chaos Magazine, also working with the likes of Louise Gray and other high profile designers. His clean portraiture illustrations have been influenced by the work of Ricardo Fumanal, and the detail of his sketches. The gorgeously graphic illustrations that Joe has done for VFS show why he should not just be limited to design. With skill like his we see that some guys do just get all the luck.
