Graphic artist Pâté on leaving advertising for illustration

Graphic artist Paul Pateman (Pâté) discusses his work and why he left a career in advertising to become a freelance illustrator in a new short film commissioned by portfolio website service Format.

The film is the second in a new series, InFrame, which looks at the career paths of different creatives. The first (below) featured New York-based documentary photographer Jessica Lehrman, whose images capturing hip hop culture and a road trip across the US with her family have been featured in the New York Times.
