Melvyn Evans

“Originally I started out as a marine engineer, working mostly on submarines, but even then I was drawing and painting. After finishing an apprenticeship at Portsmouth Dockyard I went to Camarthen Art college to do a foundation year and then to Exeter to complete my degree in illustration. I was at Goldsmiths College London and took up drawing classes at the Royal College of Art under the tuition of Bryan Kneale RA. During this period I started getting illustration commissions for magazines such as Elle, Red, Homes & Gardens etc. This generated illustration work for design, Sainsbury’s wine labels, Marks & Spencer food packaging and advertising work for Network Southeast, Mini Cooper and many more.”
