henry Fothergill is a writer, illustrator and animator based in Cromford, Derbyshire. They create worlds through writing and illustrations that feature real human stories with fantastical elements. There is a sense of wonder to Henry’s work and a unique illustrative style. Their work exists somewhere between the bizarre, the haunting, the
relatable and the adorable.

They use traditional pen and ink techniques with watercolours, gouache and acrylic inks as well as digital colour to produce a vivid, unique style. They have worked with clients such as Warwick Folk Festival, Radical Queers Resist, Radio Matlock and more.

2021 saw their first public residency with Artcore! arts charity based in Derby. Henry is currently working on their debut graphic novel, which has just received arts council funding, alongside other short stories. They are currently accepting illustration and animation commissions.

Henry's current favourite

piece of stationery is a
