Luke Dixon’s personal website
We often get asked about Luke’s personal work, does he do commissions, his background etc. Well Luke’s personal website has been down for a couple of years while we put our efforts into The BearHug Co site. However we have been working on the DUKELIXON.CO.UK for the past couple of months and it is finally up and ready. Projects and a full Q&A will be added shortly but if you want to know more about the man behind the BearHug Co and his personal work then definitely take a look.
You can look at different projects in detail along with his process and materials he uses for each piece of artwork. You can also look at the Commissions Luke has taking part in over the past four years, 2016 is set to be a big year for him and the Company. We can’t wait to share it with you all.
If you want to keep updated with all things related to the BearHug and Luke then we have a competition for you. Head over to DUKELIXON.CO.UK and sign up to our Mailing List. You have a chance to win £150 of BH Goodies – we’ll be picking the winner at 4pm on 8th May 2016. So why not enter?!
For now here is a little bio about Luke with a full, in depth Bio to follow shortly..
NAME: LUKE DIXON
LOCATION: MIDDLESBROUGH, UK
OCCUPATION: OWNER/DIRECTOR of THE BEARHUG (COMPANY) LTD
ABOUT: I’M A GRAPHIC ARTIST, ILLUSTRATOR & PRINT MAKER WHO LOOKS TO PRODUCE NICE LOOKING ARTWORK.
How do you work?
I scribble shapes onto paper with a superlight pencil, get everything lined up & then inked up. From there I may work on the piece in photoshop or illustrator – dependant on the project.
What’s your background?
I went to CCAD to cover all things art & find my creative feet, then moved onto Northumbria Uni to study Fine Art. There I specialised in the print department focusing on lino, woodcut & screen prints. I’ve been working freelance since graduating in 2009, in the same year I started my own brand THE BEARHUG (COMPANY) LTD.
