Village Fetes

Allan Deas is an illustrator originally from the East coast of Scotland. He worked for many years as a graphic and textile designer in the fashion industry before turning his hand to illustration, his true passion. His bold style reflects fond memories of children's TV programmes and books from his childhood in the '70s and '80s - a slightly retro feel coupled with more modern content and influence creating a highly original playground of colour and character with a quirky sense of humour. Allan now lives and works in Paris, France.

“I was interested in the project firstly as I have recently left the UK and it seemed a fitting tribute, secondly I'm always told that my style looks very British! The inspiration for my chosen past time 'moaning' came from the British obsession with the weather and ultimately moaning about it regardless!”
