Paul Leith

Paul Leith was born in South Shields and, following his training at Sunderland College of Art and the Royal College of Art, worked as an illustrator in London for 30 years. He created work for some of the biggest brands in editorial, advertising, print and publishing including the Radio Times, The Economist, British Rail and various household brands and supermarkets.

Sir Quentin Blake, one of Paul’s former tutors, described him as “an unusual talent which manages to convey atmospheres of retro art along with a personal voice. I don’t think I have ever seen anything quite like it and I still admire it now in its more recent manifestations.
