Jacob Stead

A super talented illustrator originally from Bradford and living in Bristol is making up some visual treats for the art.spoke.soul. trail at Cardiff Cycle Festival this June. Jacob graduated from the University of West England with a first class honours in 2011. One year on and Jacob has illustrations in Boneshaker (above illustration), Wired, Oh Comely, and Radio Times.

Jacob finds Bristol an easy city to get about by bicycle and makes the most of good weather by taking the 13 mile off road route out of his metropolis to Bath on the connecting Railway Path. I certainly think I’ll give this a go when the rain lets up! For now as we’re stuck in an endless Winter, I’m writing something inspired by my December Scandanavian experience.
