Ricky Butcher AKA WhereIDraw is a freelance Illustrator and Art Director currently living and working in Leeds, UK.


He first started illustrating during his career as a professional musician, creating merchandise during band tours. He decided to pursue his passion for visual storytelling as a full time job, graduating from Leeds Arts University with a BA (Hons) in Illustration.

During his career, Ricky has undertaken work for a number of clients, including record labels, advertising agencies and editorials. He was also invited to intern, creating work for major brands such as Disney and Netflix. Ricky's work explores fantastical worlds and unlikely marriages of unexpected subject matter. He enjoys creating illustrations that cling to reality by their fingertips, experimenting with scale, composition, and colour.


When he's not found with a pen in hand you can find Ricky out in nature walking his dog, or occasionally battling imaginary goblins in a dungeons and dragons campaign with friends.
