David Sparshott was one of the first illustrators I worked with after joining It’s Nice That and I’ve been a passionate evangelist of his skills ever since. What I like about his work is that it strikes such a different chord to the brilliant but very whimsical stuff which we post an awful lot on the site. This point is exemplified by the newest commission uploaded to David’s Handsome Frank portfolio, a series of illustrations for N Magazine bringing a former Yugoslav leader’s luxurious private train to life.
Marshal Josip Tito ruled Yugoslavia between the end of World War II right up to his death in 1980, and his no-expenses-spared train was one manifestation of his wealth and power. On board, he entertained guests from the Queen to Sophia Loren, Richard Burton to Elizabeth Taylor, and David has recreated some witty, imagined scenes on top of photographs of the train itself.
