Tom Bagshaw's Dark FantasyErotica // Friday, 15 Nov 2013
Based in the Georgian city of Bath, England, Tom Bagshaw works as an illustrator under the moniker Mostlywanted and is represented by Central Illustration Agency. His commercial work is commissioned worldwide for a wide range of clients, Saatchi & Saatchi, Sony, the BBC, GQ and Scholastic to name a few.
For his personal work he has developed a highly rendered digital painting style through which he explores themes of fantasy, beauty and mysticism. While is work deals with imaginative content, it also aims for a strong level of realism in its presentation. Although feminine beauty plays a large role in his work, the women he depicts are never frail damsels in distress. More often than not they’re strong, intriguing characters, with an air of mystery to them.
