Mr Russell Weekes


My work crosses creative disciplines, including art-direction, illustration, design, animation, publishing and education. Through working in these fields, I have gathered experience across a range of industries from art-direction for The Guardian, through to music video direction under the representation of Warp Films. 

Prior to taking this position at Kingston School of Art, I have been a visiting lecturer on the Illustration Animation course, and on the Visual Communication course at The Sir John Cass School of Art.

The reading of images and the use of visual language as a tool for communication are ongoing areas of investigation, both in my work and my teaching.
