DESPOP (Design and POP ART) is the brainchild of designer and comic book creator, Des Taylor, whose unique library of designs are the dominant form on this site. With over 18 years experience as a freelance illustrator (for clients such as Michael Jackson, Theo Fennell, FHM, Cosmopolitan, LA PERLA,Citroen and many more) Des wanted to start a new venture using and selling his unique brand of art.
Here at DESPOP we have a genuine passion towards Comic Book Illustration, POP ART and Urban Photography. Our motto is “INVEST IN ART”. We are looking to create and sell LIMITED EDITION pieces of art that can be found nowhere else on the web. You buy a ‘ONE-OFF’ Piece, you OWN a ONE-OFF’ piece!
Starting with the successful ‘Art of Des Taylor’ Exhibition at the trendy Maverik Showroom in Shoreditch it is the goal of DESPOP to have regular exhibitions/shows to promote and make sales of limited edition work from the DESPOP library.
It is also the goal of DESPOP to capture your Imagination in our own brand of Graphic Stories which are home to Female protagonists such as KATIE ROGERS, SCARLETT COUTURE , VESHA VALENTINE and few more in the DESPOP library.
Our Motto ” BRINGING SOME CHICKS INTO COMICS” has that exact goal. In the world of male dominated comics we thought it would be pertinent to show what the ladies are capable of with a different approach to story-telling through our pictures and prose type storybooks as well as our comic book projects.
