Originally trained in fine art and traditional painting techniques, Alexander Jackson went on to study Illustration at Edinburgh College of Art, where he developed a more graphical style. Influenced by pop-culture, film, music, animation and a very broad range of visual art, his work often deals with responding to mainstream media, while at the same time showing a keen interest in character.
He has produced editorial illustration as well as work for comics, children’s books, illustrations for short stories, book covers, portraits and murals. His children’s book, Jenny’s Bath, was acknowledged by 3×3.
Apart from illustration Alexander is a keen musician and spends his time being involved in various musical projects. He has dabbled in film making, soundtrack work, photography and writing. He still enjoys painting.
