Story.

Pics: Mowgli Illustrations: Stevie Gee

November 2015

well to describe Stevie… he is actually one of the most down to earth and kind people i know, he puts his family and friends before himself and still finds the time to be a master wizard of illustration and art. So basically stevie is the best dude around.
is that good? hah

They’d ride around on these rainbow boards, wearing crazy leather jackets that said ‘Rainbow Riders’. I love telling stories and people find it interesting – I hope.

Stevie Gee for Huck Magazine

“Stevie Gee meanwhile is a UK illustrator and artist whose humour and work seems to resonate across the pond. He may have grown up in leafy Essex, but with a bona fide Pearly King for a grandfather, his work marries Cockney wit with California cool. Think John Travolta’s leather-clad sleaze meets surf culture’s psychedelic past – chuck in rabbits on bikes, titties that talk, and high-energy puns charged with gnar (‘Stay Tight Like Dynamite!’) and you’ll soon get a sense of the Stevie Gee way. Clients dig it – Paul Smith, Patagonia and Band of Horses have all had the Gee treatment – and if his Folklore contribution is anything to go by, Stevie’s on the verge of blowing up.”

Stevie Gee: I’ve just done a bunch of stuff for a big brand and it pays really badly. I just don’t find it satisfying. My personal work often has stories behind it – like with Rainbow Riders, which started off as this leather jacket that I painted that then became a series of prints. I made up this back-story: there was a Mexican guy, an Asian guy, a black guy and a white guy and they kind of represented ethnic diversity. They lived during this mythical time in the 1950s when there was racism flying around and they got together through skateboarding and created a crew. They’d ride around on these rainbow boards, wearing crazy leather jackets that said ‘Rainbow Riders’. I love telling stories and people find it interesting – I hope. Even if they don’t, I like telling them”
