Kyle Platts is a freelance illustrator and comic book artist from Sheffield, who now lives and works in London.
Since graduating from University of the Arts London, Kyle has produced work for a number of publications, including Nobrow, Vice, The New York Times and Anorak Magazine. He has also been involved with several art and design shows. Most recently, Kyle exhibited and sold work at Pick Me Up Graphic Fair, in Somerset House, and at East London Comics and Art Festival, in Bethnal Green’s York Hall.
Kyle’s work is often provocative and makes light of sinister scenarios. His designs are playful and humorous, sometimes crude, and definitely not to be taken seriously!
He uses bright, bold, sometimes florescent, colour and strong line, combined with repetitive pattern to produce complex scenes and fictional characters.
Kyle’s latest comic book ‘Megaskull’, for Nobrow, is the first of a series where you can be introduced to some of these characters and delve into the world in which they live in.
