Big Suze is an illustrator and designer based in Glasgow.
After graduating from the Graphic Arts & Design course
at Leeds Metropolitan University in 2015, Suzie worked as a graphic designer, before
going freelance and working as a print technician and co-operative member at
Leeds Print Workshop. She moved to Glasgow in 2018 to study a Masters in Communication Design at the Glasgow School of Art, where she focussed on ideas of gender, censorship and the provocative.
More recently Suzie’s work has been driven by more traditional themes of food and still life. Alongside her freelance illustration practice, Suzie works
at Print Clan, an open-access textile screen printing studio in Glasgow. She is particularly
interested in facilitating arts access for disadvantaged communities and
Suzie is always up for commissions, collaborations or just good old chats. She also offers an affordable screen printing service for artists & illustrators wanting small editions. Get in touch.
Bad Hands is a collaborative, submission-based zine put together to celebrate crap drawings that would never normally be shared with the public. 18 illustrators from across the world willingly shared their mistakes to be compiled into this 24 page zine. As well as acknowledging the necessity of failures within the creative process, the zine aimed to connect and introduce illustrators to each other regardless of location, age, 'professional status' or skill. Each contributor received a copy of the zine as a thanks for taking part.
