My name is Jethro Lentle. I was born and raised in New Zealand.
I’ve always enjoyed painting fantasy art. When I was young, I was extremely interested in darkly themed fiction and mythology. This was shown in my early drawings at primary and secondary school (sometimes to the dismay of my teachers). Undettered, I continued in my artistic pursuit & earnt several awards in visual art subjects.
I later completed my Bachelors of Fine Arts after studying for four years at the University of Auckland. Soon after I began studying animation and design at South Seas Film and Television School. I then worked in the animation industry for several years before returning to my love of illustrating fantastic subjects.
I began showing my art in exhibitions around the UK and now work full time in illustrating fantasy, science fiction and horror themed works. Most of my commisions are from illustrating book covers and gaming media.
