Tonight’s queer artist feature is @actr_illustration
Currently based in Manchester, UK, Agathe trained as a Graphic Designer in France and is an Art History graduate. She has always had an interest in drawing and illustration. Over the years she has mainly worked in the arts, in marketing and gallery management for various museums.
Recently she decided to take a leap of faith and leave her day job to start a Masters in Preventive Conservation and work full-time as an illustrator. Her drawings hint to a lot of her interests such as taxidermy, curios, botany and oddities. She is also inspired by tattoos, nature, animals and anything slightly morbid. Her work is always hand-drawn and a piece can take up to 10 hours to complete depending on the illustration.
