Hi, I’m Tom. I started Paper Plane Sundays to create art for my love of reading and books and started sharing my art and quotes on Instagram. As an avid reader, writer, graphic designer and illustrator I am completely obsessed with books and design. I have been a graphic designer for over 13 years in the fashion industry designing graphics for mens and womenswear for stores throughout the world.
I was born in Sydney, Australia and lived there until I was 8 years old. My Dad's job then took us to New Zealand for a year before we then moved again to England and I have lived in the U.K ever since.
I didn't always love reading. In fact I thought it was a bit of a chore and would never be something I did for pleasure and it wasn't until I was about 25 that I really became obsessed. But since then I have never looked back. I have however always loved writing and drawing. I have never had any official training and am completely self taught but somehow manage to hold down a successful career as a graphic designer in the fashion industry.
As a freelance Graphic Designer in the fashion industry I get to design for brands such as Fat Face (as seen here), Next, Topman, Topshop, ASOS and Urban Outfitters to name just a few.
