Patrick George is a graduate of Falmouth School of Art. His illustrations are concept-driven, with the simplicity of an idea and its execution being at the core of his work, incorporating visual twists and wit to engage the viewer. Patrick aims to bring a new perspective to familiar topics, whether appearing as a suite of informative icons, an infographic to bring data to life, an editorial piece to lift an article or a billboard in Times Square.
His work has featured in D&AD, AOI’s World Illustration Awards and touring exhibition, Communication Arts, 3×3 Annual and won a SPOTS editorial award. Patrick has also had his work featured in Design Week, and referenced in ‘The Power and Influence of Illustration’ by Professor Alan Male.

His latest book, ‘Planet Rescue’ was released in 2019 after a successful crowdfunding campaign.
