Origin by Stuart Whitton
Artist and illustrator Stuart Whitton's first solo exhibition, Origin, opens at the Exposure Gallery in London tomorrow evening. Whitton will be exhibiting a series of his exquisitely drawn portraits alongside typographic pieces.
Working largely in pencil, Whitton has produced work for a range of commercial clients, including CR. His show will feature both old and new work, as well as collaborations with others. Shown here are a selection of drawings that you can expect to see.

Stunning illustrations and nice typography project. I wish I had time to get down to London to see it all in the flesh.
Its a shame that posts like this never get quite the same attention as posts relating to advertising/branding projects. Really beautiful drawings that will undoubtably fall by the way side as a boring new branding project, completed by a corporate design giant will suck up all the attention. Great work Stuart! I'll try my best to swing by the show.
I work just down the street from this, I'm going :D
Stu is one of nicest chaps i have met in the illustration world, and one of the most talented.
Make sure you get down there tomorrow night!
Sorry I could't make it to the opening, but will definitely get along to the show soon. Lovely work.
I went to the show tonight and it was fantastic, I really enjoyed myself and the drawings were fascinating.
