Who is Doodle man?


The Doodle Man is Sam Cox, a creator from England. He will be transforming an area of the fair with his unique style. 

His work consumes walls, furniture and many surfaces, almost like a virus and is often described as 'Graffiti Spaghetti'. This is because his clusters of characters, objects and patterns group together in a formation that appears to continue to grow relentlessly.

His passion for creating work has lead him to experimenting with various formats of art including animation, video work and performance art.

Doodle Man has worked on a bunch of fun projects for clients in New York and Sweden recently, and is now looking forward to taking over part of the London Illustration Fair!


The London Illustration Fair 2016 will see a larger area dedicated for workshops, talks and interactive goings on. We are currently approaching a number of companies that have made a name for themselves running workshops and live events throughout London and the UK. Part of the enjoyment of the Fair is to come away with that piece that you printed, stamped, pressed or created yourself, with the help of some perfectly poised professionals.

Last year's fair saw the workshop space as a hub of activity - with drop in workshops ranging from screen-printing to jewellery making, architectural illustration to collage.
