You might be surprised/relieved to know that today’s illustrator has nothing to do with comics! When I first started playing around on the internet in 1996, one of the first illustrators I discovered online was John Hersey. He was one of a new breed of digital illustrators who embraced the Mac and the net wholeheartedly and since then has had a series of wonderful, bonkers, online portfolios.
I had the pleasure of commissioning Mr H a couple of times when I worked in Chicago years ago, and I used to enjoy long rambling conversations with him (I do ramble on when I’m talking to someone I really admire).
See why I rate his work so highly by visiting john hersey: illustration. Enjoy!
