Born in 1986 in Swindon, England, Iain Mcarthur became an art fanatic at the age of eight. Inspired by cartoon shows and comic books, he began creating odd fantasy drawings and and anime characters. As he grew older, he began drawing realistic figures and faces, influenced by artists such as Mucha, Klimt, Lucian Freud, Jenny Saville, James Jean, and others.
Mcarthur graduated from Swindon College in illustration and hopes to continue illustration studies in the future. Using mostly pencil, watercolours, and pigment pens, he specializes in shirt designs, tattoo designs, prints designs, posters, album art, logo and branding, and editorial illustration.
