Essy May

Essy May is a science-fantasy artist and print designer based in London. Combining the wonder of the stars (her uncle is a renowned astronomer) with the edginess of extra-terrestrial b-movies, Essy’s digitally-coloured graphite drawings are steeped in dreaminess, influenced by the days of classic sci-fi.

This futuristic but nostalgia-driven aesthetic is embodied by Essy’s favoured working techniques: hand-drawing in pencil first, then coloured in her signature tones with an airbrush. Her work has been featured on album covers and event posters as well as print designs for Japanese fashion labels, while her prints have been exhibited in galleries worldwide.
