Brought up in the Shires of the North of England, Mitch’s fascination with design and illustration was initiated by a love of comics and the Star Wars phenomenon. His first true influence was Ralph McQuarrie (Star Wars’ chief illustrator) and, much do the disapproval of various art teachers, he spent most of his early years in the realms of fantasy art and graffiti.
In addition, Mitch has worked on many special projects, live paints and collaborations with other artists; 55 Roots for 55 DSL (live paint and group art show with Dragon and Shibuya from Japan), Bacardi brand development (with Mode 2) and Black Twang/We Love You album projects (with Banksy).
Throughout the majority of Mitch’s career, Addict Clothing company have been a consistent ally, sharing many of the same influences, ideals and vision. Perhaps the most reciprocal relationship to date, we all look forward to wearing the fruits of their collective passion.
Entitled ‘Icons Series’ this one off set of officially licensed exclusive boxed tees depicts Mitch’s unique signature illustration style of three of the most iconic characters from the original Star Wars trilogy… Boba Fett, Sandtrooper and Scout Trooper.
