I first came across the work of today’s Fri-llustrator, Jonathan Edwards in The Guardian’s Guide section, but he’s drawn for a wide roster of clients including Radio Times, Time Out, MAD, Mojo, The Big Issue and The Telegraph to name but a few. He’s one of those illustrators that I absolutely adore – OK, I’m biased ’cos he draws comics, but his design, colour palette and wonderful funky drawings give me a grin so big, both corners of my mouth join together.
Again, I had a real struggle picking images to illustrate this post, but I whittled it down to the three you see here. Top, is my composite of Mr. E’s character designs for Capital Crimes game, above is Alan Moore for Paranormal magazine and below, a wonderful illo of the mighty Serge Gainsbourg.
Check out the Jonathan Edwards website to see more illustrations plus comics and sketches. And there’s even a shop, if you feel like treating yourself.
