GET TO KNOW THE ARTIST
JUSTIN EAGLETON – BORN AND BRED IN MANCHESTER
Justin Eagleton is a professional artist, illustrator and designer born and bred in Manchester, England.

Whilst in the games industry Justin worked for global giants EA Sports on many of its best selling FIFA titles
After leaving the games industry Justin honed his digital skills into graphic design and has extensive knowledge and experience working with a range of top clients including Malmaison Hotels, IHG, The Manchester United Foundation, Gatwick AirporT and Travelodge hotels.
His commissioned work has seen him draw pencil portraits for Manchester United and England’s, Rio Ferdinand, Elbow frontman, Guy Garvey, and more recently two very special drawings of Sir Bobby Charlton and Eric Cantona which he was lucky enough to personally present to the footballing legends.
Justin’s artistic skills lead him to being chosen to design and paint a huge bee sculpture for Wild in Art’s, ‘Bee in the City’, in Manchester (a public art trail) and his Hacienda nightclub inspired creation was seen by upwards of half a million people. His bee artwork was sold at a charity auction for £20K to a private collector.
