Tom Bagshaw lives Bath, England, and works as a commercial illustrator. His personal work explore fantastical and mystic themes. The intricate style of painting he adopts sets it apart from his commerical portfolio.
‘Feminine beauty plays a large role in my work,’ he says, ‘but they are never frail damsels in distress. More often than not they’re strong, intriguing characters, with an air of mystery to them.’
Bagshaw strikes a balanced tone by embellishing the dark and ghoulish elements with quirky and absurd details. For his commercial illustration he works under the pseudonym Mostlywanted. His clients include Saatchi & Saatchi, Sony, BBC, Kraft, GQ, Scholastic, and Random House.
