49 Seconds: Tom Mac

From Landscaping to Illustrating

Tom Mac joined us late last year from the gloriously sun kissed exotic city of London. As an illustrator Tom’s been responsible for some of the most intricate vector creations out there. We sat down on the snow covered lawns of Madison Square Park over some hot cocoa and warm conversation to find out what makes the man tick (petrol and hi-chews apparently).

Where were you before New York?
London, England. Soaking in all the sunshine it’s famous for.
