Ollie Silvester is a commercial Illustrator and animator.

Based in Bristol, UK, Ollie spends most of his time drawing birds, plants and the strange fluctuations within his imagination. He takes inspiration from the mundane and the moments in-between moments. He is always trying to document the nonsensical humour that is found in the everyday, the colour within the seemingly drab, the noise within the quiet and the quiet within the noise.
