Keith knew from a young age that he either wanted to be an artist or a stuntman.
About 15 years later he graduated with a degree in illustration, bought a secondhand mac and completed a photoshop course. Keith then worked on some art projects with friends, most notable of which was a partnership in a t-shirt company, which gained an underground following and was big in Japan for a bit. It burned bright and fast for a few years but folded at the end of a string of bad business decisions.
Keith dusted himself down, did 10 years as a storyboard artist for numerous advertising agencies, where his ability to turn around quality illustrations lightning fast was well suited. He often worked through the night to meet tight deadlines and once sat at Mother for 36 hours straight, drawing all of the frames for all of the different routes for their pitch.
Currently working on the A-Z of death spray custom, his work is also an integral part of the re-branding of a law firm, producing 80 illustrations so far across all of their literature etc. His ongoing personal project is the visual diary of keith watts, an ever expanding blog of reportage illustration documenting his surroundings day to day.
