Paul Cox (born 1957)


Paul William Cox (born 1957)

Paul Cox’s fluid, immediate draughtsmanship and vibrant colour make him one of the most enjoyable and versatile of contemporary illustrators. Well known for his warm and witty contributions to books and magazines, he has ranged in his work as a designer between stamps and stage sets.

Paul Cox was born in London on 31 July 1957, the eldest of three children of the architect Oliver Cox CBE. He was educated at Port Regis, Shaftesbury, Dorset, and Stanbridge Earls School, Romsey, Hampshire, and studied illustration at Camberwell School of Art (under Linda Kitson, 1975-79) and the Royal College of Art (1979-82). While there, he won second prize in the Folio Society’s annual competition, for illustrations to Kingsley Amis’s
Lucky Jim (though these were not published).

Since his graduation in 1982, Paul has worked as a freelance illustrator and painter, involving himself in an extraordinary number and variety of projects. Readers of newspapers and magazines on both sides of the Atlantic will instantly recognise his wonderfully fresh images from the
Daily Telegraph, Country Life, The Spectator, The Sunday Times Magazine, Punch, The Times, Blueprint Magazine, Vanity Fair and Esquire (whose ‘Smart Money’ section featured Cox’s work for over two years).

His career as a book illustrator has been equally diverse, titles ranging from Tim Heald’s
Honourable Estates (1992) to Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows (1993).
