Junior Tomlin was born and raised in Ladbroke Grove, west London. Renowned for his stunning flyer and record cover art, mostly produced during the golden era of rave culture, Junior’s visionary work combines influences from sci-fi, surrealism, fantasy, Afrofuturism and comics. The result is artwork that defined an era and earned him the title ‘The Salvador Dali of Rave art’.

He worked with promoters from 1989 onwards plus a wide variety of influential labels, such as Kickin’, React, ZTT and Mute. Junior was a colourist on a variety of famous comic titles Judge Dredd, Action Man, Transformers, for Marvel, Panini, Titian, and 2000AD, In 2020 he produced his book "Flyer and cover art" published by Velocity press. https://velocitypress.uk/product/junior-tomlin-book/
