Perry Rowe's emotive illustrations convey the impact of major life changes

Winner of a D&AD New Blood Yellow Pencil and shortlisted for an AOI World Illustration Award, London-based designer and Illustrator Perry Rowe has been making waves and winning fans since graduating from Arts University Bournemouth in 2017.

Alongside his design practice, which has seen him gain experience at studios including AKQA, Pentagram, NB Studio, GBH, MultiAdaptor and Alphabetical, Rowe also pursues illustration to communicate his ideas and personal experiences through the combination of textural and digital techniques.

Here we've featured a series of illustrations that focus on observations of solitude and feelings of isolation during a period of change in a person's life. These images are at once simple and surreal, and bold and entrancing, all adding up to a strong point of view that never fails to land an emotional punch.
