My name is Cai Burton.
I am an Illustrator and Designer based in Bristol.
But what that really means is that I draw things for a living.
Which I think is pretty cool.
Creativity is my passion and I've always loved drawing but since 2014, I've been doodling professionally.
I love creating striking work that makes use of a whole variety of patterns. I have a huge respect for the craft and hand draw everything I do because it offers me the freedom you can't get otherwise. A big part of the work I do is the process, I think a lot about mindfulness and the organic progression of the patterns in my work.
I believe that art is an inherently good thing and should be both affordable and accessible. My work is priced to reflect that and the important thing for me is that art is a part of our everyday lives.
What do I do?
Taking an idea and making it a reality can be one of the hardest things to do. It also gives you the chance to be your most creative. Illustrations are what I do best, and I work with a range of people and ideas (some of which are my own too) to create beautiful illustrations.
There is something inspiring about a massive piece of artwork. Working on a large scale needs a completely different approach to working in a sketchbook. I love the process of scaling up my work and drawing in such public places
Everyone likes things that look good - myself included. I started working as a designer because I couldn't stand powerpoint presentations that were formatted badly. Now, I work with a whole variety of people to help them make things look good.
The most direct way to engage with your audience is through social media. I've worked with a whole range of companies and organisations to help shape their online presence and build meaningful relationships with their followers.
The range of different events going on around Bristol is exciting, and I'm lucky enough to help shape that. I've been working as an events manager and programmer helping to organise a whole range of different things going on in Bristol. Making a buzz is something I can do well.
