Scholarly biography

Jasper Goodall has taught on the Illustration course at the University of Brighton since 2001. Throughout this time he has been an active and influential illustrator working comercially for clients worldwide.

He is credited (alongside contemoraries) for trailblazing and reinvigorating the illustration genre during the late 1990's and early 2000's. Using digital media and making images that could be used alongside fashion photography in magazines such and The Face, Dazed and Confused and Arena he injected illustration with an aspirational and cutting edge vibe.

In 2014 Goodall took a step back from the creative industry and trained as a counsellor at the Psychosynthesis trust. Here he took a particular interest in how the princilples presented in the arena of personal counselling could be applied to a creative education. Pshychosynthesis as a modality has always considered itself larger than personal therapy and has held the posibility of the approach being used in organisation and educative contexts. Goodall's recent work at the university has been around writing projects that aim to integrate psychological principles within them in order to address self criticism and creative anxiety, which can lead to paralysis.

Goodall's recent artistic output has changed significantly since he left the arena of comercial illustration. He is now focusing on a photographic practice exploring the theme of fear, apprehension, and reverence by spending time in the forest after nightfall and photographing this nocturnal world.

A side Project 'Augury Woods' sets up an imaginary world which takes the form of faked witch sightings. These images explore themes of wildness, magic, feminine power and contemporary horror tropes.
