Hothouse talk: Russell Weekes

Artists and Inspiration, Hothouse Talks

Finding funny and interesting things  in our everyday life and in our surroundings is what Russell Weekes do best. With a degree in illustration, Weekes wouldn’t call himself an illustrator but rather someone who works with observations. His work is very inspiring and evidence of that you actually can do a lot by simply working with what you have around you and finding connections between things.

Moving through any medium that fit what he wants to say, not labelling himself as a specific kind of practitioner has really worked for him but listening to him talk today, he stresses that it is sometimes difficult when explaining to people what he does, and that not labelling himself might not work for everyone.
