Sue Eastland has always made her living as a professional illustrator although she
trained as a designer graduating from Huddersfield University with an MA in Spatial
She lives and works in West Yorkshire and takes her inspiration for her characters
from viewing human behaviour and recording it in a humorous context. “I am a social
observer and watcher of people and situations, I love trying to find the unexpectedly
humorous or slightly disquieting detail that makes a painting or illustration come
alive and tell a hidden story”. Her characters are often found to be behaving in
a whimsical or capricious manner.
